Mission & Values

Our mission is to create a kindness aware community that values the spirit of generosity and the action of kindness towards each other as an important element for world peace and growth. We aim to group committed people who are willing to inspire others to practice kindness and to pass it on to others. We believe that an act of kindness is not big or small, is not owned by one person, one religion, one political party, or one portion of the community. Kindness is an individual decision which has an immense ramification in the lives of others and grows.


We respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person and treat all with justice, equity and compassion. We accept one another and encourage diversity of thoughts and ideas.


We believe that the ethnic, cultural and social diversity of our nation should be reflected in our staff, Board and network.


We believe that every member of ARK is a leader, whose action multiply to benefits that ripple beyond a single act of kindness.


We celebrate the wonder of life and beauty of creation. We are committed to expressing our joy and gratitude to God and to all who join us in our work.


We strive to promote an atmosphere of openness, trust, and relationship, and to foster a spirit of respect for the gifts and needs of all persons.
