Chief Executive Profile

Blair Corbett is the founder of Ark of Hope For Children, Inc. Mr. Corbett worked in the residential lighting industry holding management and ownership positions over his twenty-five years in the field. The desire to do more to use their talents and gifts to positively affect children's lives and leave a legacy of hope, drove him to begin aiding abused children that deserved much better overall care. Blair and wife Verna are parents to ten children, including five special needs children that were adopted from foster care.


MISSION AND PROGRAMS

Mission

Ark of Hope for Children is "Breaking the chains of abuse for those victimized as children by human trafficking, child abuse and bullying to lead survivors into lives filled with faith, hope and love." Ark of Hope is a human rights umbrella organization using a trauma-informed approach to serve survivors through our various programs. This approach acknowledges that traumatized people often respond to daily life quite differently even years after their traumatic experiences ended. When we address and patiently process their trauma, we change lives. Unconditional love, understanding and mentoring support empowers victims to mold the challenges of their past into hope filled futures as thriving survivors. Effective mentoring and emotional healing is taking place for youth from preteen to mid twenties. Even adult survivors of child abuses are finding new hope through Ark of Hope for Children.

Programs

Program:Removing Chains: live chat survivor support site
Budget: NaN
Category: Human Services
Population Served: Crime/Abuse Victims

Program Description:

Through our customized live chat website, RemovingChains.org, we provide emotional support for victimized people young and old to transform them from depression, self-destructive tendencies to lives of victory over their past. We provide 12+ live chat rooms that are focused topically for specific survivors such as, child abuse; human trafficking; ritual and religious abuse; adult survivors of child abuse; female survivors; male survivors; bullying victims; and even those victimized by health issues that leave them feeling sidelined and often home bound. All rooms provide for group or private text only chat and are safe and moderated. Through RemovingChains.org we provide online listening and mentoring for those victimized as children by human trafficking, bullying and all forms of child abuse. Where ever possible we connect survivors with professional resources within their own region or country. We have found the Internet to be profoundly useful. By not seeing us face to face survivors feel more able to share their past in a safe way with dramatically lessened fear of guilt, shame and judgment. Rev. Blair has personally worked with dozens of victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, severe neglect, emotional abuse, ritual abuse and bullying.

Balance Sheet Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2007

Note: The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities also must be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
