New Foster Families
Family Ark is pleased to announce two new foster homes being licensed in December!

These new families will be joining Family Ark's currently licensed homes to provide a stable home environment for children in need in our community.  We are honored to have an amazing community of foster families!

Our Foster Care Program identifies individuals or families who are willing to open their home and their hearts to children in need. Family Ark looks for foster parents to help children (birth to age 18) who have experienced abuse, neglect or other trauma. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more information about becoming a foster parent, please contact Laura Keeney at
Holiday Donations
During this holiday season, we have been blessed with many generous donations for the children in our programs. All donations provided have been gifted to our children in foster care, our hard working foster parents, and home based clients to make their holidays a little brighter. A special thank you to Geek Squad of Louisville, Manheim Louisville, Laughlin Millea Hillman Architecture, Tim Smith, Tim Statts, Suntan City on State Street, and The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.

Foster Family Holiday Celebration 2015
Staff and board members gathered at the Lodge on December 17th for Family Ark's annual Foster Family Holiday Celebration. Our foster families enjoyed dinner, catered by Stumler's, door prizes, presents for both foster children and parents, and a surprise visit from Santa! Family Ark is appreciative of our amazing foster parents who are committed, caring, and supportive of the children in their care. They are making such a positive difference in the lives of children in Southern Indiana. Thank you!

Ready for Santa!
