And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” - Matthew 25:40

Ark House "Occupancy" Team Members

Occupancy teams field phone calls from potential Ark House residents to determine if they can fill an apartment or be put on a waiting list. Two volunteers are needed to put the responsibilities on a rotating basis with another team that is already in place.

One team is in place. One or two additional two-person teams are needed to rotate the responsibilities. Tasks can be done anywhere you have a computer and access to the internet. An Ark House cell phone is provided for all voice communications to protect your privacy.

- Be available 8 am to 5 pm, Monday thru Friday, on assigned weeks to receive calls from prospective Ark House occupants and hospital social workers. As with any business, it is acceptable for an incoming call to go to voice mail if you are unavailable for a time.
- Coordinate referrals from hospital social workers via phone, email, or text.
- Coordinate with the applicant to get the name and email address for each prospective occupant.
- Send applications to the patient and any prospective occupants to get authorization for doing a background check. Review application for any “red flags” that would prevent acceptance.
- Request background check and review results for acceptance. In cases where the prospective occupant might not be accepted, notify Ark House Chair to take action.
- If the occupant is acceptable, notify patient/occupant and place on the waitlist.
- When an apartment becomes available, send an occupancy agreement (lease) for signature.
- Work with patient/occupant to get them into the apartment.
