HARK Inc. was founded in 2012 with the focus on making educational and support services an abundant resource for families of people dealing with ALS. At the helm of the company is Donna York, who created the nonprofit after taking care of her father as he battled with ALS for a year and half. Chiefly amongst Ms. York’s many goals for the organization is that of her objective to educate others, raise awareness, and inspire others to hold on to their faith when facing ALS. Notably, Ms. York completed a documentary that was screened at NBC, which she hopes to use to raise more awareness for ALS.
In 2012, Ms. York was honored as the Somerset County Woman of the Year. She has also been the recipient of the Paul & Jean Krauss Award for Service to Youth. Most recently, Ms. York was honored by Worldwide Who’s Who for her contributions to those facing or caring for someone with ALS. Ms. York is pursuing certification in nonprofit management at Rutger’s University to further her knowledge of running a nonprofit. In the years to come, Ms. York intends to promote her film as much as possible, with the hope of gaining national recognition for her organization.
