Letter From Sister Yvonne Lopez

Welcome to the ARK REFUGE!


We would like you to know more about our facility and program but mostly we would like you to know more about us and our love of God. Our primary and only goal is to “FEED HIS SHEEP”.


The ARK REFUGE is a non-profit organization dedicated to the specific goal of restoring the lives of individual and families affected by issue related too homelessness and substance abuse. The ARK has been a homeless and substance abuse center in LaGrange, Georgia and the surrounding communities over twenty years.

It is our mission to implement programs which will meet the needs and solve the problems that homeless and disenfranchised individuals face daily. The ARK is committed to improve the “quality of life” by providing services to the homeless and or/ substance and alcohol abuse, prisoners and others for the purpose of rehabilitation and re-instilling hope, faith, confident and life skills needed to reengage in society and live a healthy and productivity life. This residential booklet contains the key policies, procedures, rules and expectations of the ARK REFUGE; and other information you will need as part of your stay here at the ARK.


The success of the ARK REFUGE is determined by our success in operating as a unified team. The primary goal at the ARK REFUGE, and yours, is to live our mission statement and strive to live a healthy and productive life through the work of Jesus Christ.


With the help, support and assistance of the LaGrange Community, I have started a very aggressive campaign to rebrand and expand the scope of services and programs through outreach and networking. At the ARK, we will continue to strive to see that GOD is first in your life, seek his righteousness and all things will be added onto you (Matthew 6:33).


Good Luck! We look forward to assisting and serving you during your time of need.
