De Ark?

De Ark consists of three parts.

For starters there's the MFC (multifunctional centre) in Anderlecht. This is a center for children and youth with a light to moderate mental disability, possibly with behavioral issues.

Than we have our daycenter in Haren, where adult with a mental disability can attend any of our workshops. To learn, to have fun and from time to time have an excursion.

Finally we also offer supported living. Here we try to find the perfect solution for the clients needs. We offer group living in our "House in Haren" or for those who would like to live more independently there is also "Villa Verdun". Where cliënts can live semi-independently.


Founding history

In the 80's, there was an acute shortage of care for special education youth. From this necessity De Ark was born in 1986. Starting as a boarding school sensitive for the needs of the health care sector.

Since then we haven't stopped evolving and expanding to De Ark that we know today. With the founding of our daycenter and our home for supported living.

Now a days we are a VAPH approved of care.
