The Ark Project is a vision we have to buy a bus and convert it into a mobile "Bed For The Night" for anyone that has housing issues, particularly the homeless currently sleeping the streets of Reading.
The bus will sleep up to 12, it will tow a trailer that has been converted into a shower unit, with a washing machine, dryer and change of clothes, a food trailer “burger van” will also be in tow, the bus will run 365 – mainly at night times from 8pm.
We also understand people have drug and alcohol addictions and would like to offer those with such problems the help they need to beat the addiction, we intend on becoming a refuge for the lost and needy, a place people they can seek out and get help, support, and guidance, together with a hot meal, change of clothes, shower, and a “bed for the night” not forgetting an hours worth of ministering about the love, power, and transformation that can happen once a person calls on the name of Jesus together with the fellowship, and support of proactive Holy Spirit filled Christian brothers and sisters.
The will be a NO Alcohol, No Drugs rule and anyone wanting to access the bus may be asked to undergo a search, people already high, or drunk will be assessed accordingly.
We will be offering counselling and social support, intent on getting to the root cause of the issues that caused them to become homeless, addicted, depressed... once identified we will put a program in place utilising the local support centres, and charities already well established in Reading.
We will offer a FREE drug & alcohol rehab for those wishing to break free from their addictions, this will be supported housing in a Christian rehab which can last up to 18 months, transportation and financial support will be given to those that can show they are “fighting” to beat the addictions.
We are looking for tradesmen to help convert the bus, chippies, plumbers, sparkies, handymen,
