Providing opportunity to the unseen: JOIN A SERVICE TEAM

About Us

Education, Advocacy, COMPASSION

Every time we lead out an outreach team, our goal is to show the incredible love and joy that can exist when we serve others.  When we seek out people who are in need and provide hope, their entire life has a new outlook.

Our History

In 2005, Katie Stewart and Brain Wagner went to Jamaica on a family vacation and felt called to return the following year to serve people in the country.

Their lives were undeniably changed when they met the joy-filled people and began to see the extreme need for advocates on the island. They returned every year following, and in 2009 cofounded the Ark Angel Network to support at-risk kids both in Jamaica and in the world.

ARK Angel Network's mission is to create a conversation about the massive need for early education intervention in underserved countries and provide support and resources that will empower children for life-long success.

Meet Our Dedicated Team

We build schools, libraries/learning centers, houses, orphanages, and most importantly: loving relationships.

Current Interns


Marta Bozek

Marta lives in Chicago and attends Loyola University studying sociology and anthropology on a pre-medical track. Marta met Katie on a short-term mission trip in June of 2017 when she fell in love with the culture, the work and most importantly the people of Jamaica. After connecting with Katie, in one year Marta had returned 4 times and for the entire summer as an intern for the Ark Angel Network. She feels called to continue work in Jamaica with Katie as a mentor to bring light to as many places as she can. The best friends, family, and relationships in Jamaica are what keep her heart in Jamaica.
