Sheltering Arms Finds a Permanent Home


Sheltering Arms, a Community-Based Organization (CBO) providing services to children and families most in need, has found a permanent new space for their operations in the Rockaways. The Arker Companies worked with Sheltering Arms to build out almost 5,000sf of operating space for them at Beach Channel Senior Apartments (34-11 Beach Channel Drive).

The new permanent location, which opened last month, will help its local organization Rock Safe Streets to better serve the community and further its mission of reducing gun violence in the community while Sheltering Arms provides family services.

"The Arker Companies is excited to partner with such a vital CBO in the neighborhood, providing a permanent new space to Sheltering Arms in our Beach Channel project," said Alex Arker, Principal at The Arker Companies. "Sheltering Arms supports thousands of New York children in extreme poverty each year with programs designed to improve health, community well-being, and academic achievement, and now with this new space, we are able to support their work as they continue to have such an important impact in the Rockaways."
