About EastArk Enterprises

Founded in 1972 with an idea to help individuals with intellectual disabilities learn and secure jobs within the community. We started with subcontracting to local area businesses for packaging, assembly, labeling, pick up and delivery, etc. which provided many Mid-South industries with a reliable workforce. 

In addition, EastArk provides "supported employment" situations through mobile crews that perform highway litter pick-up, light janitorial services and on-site repacking in an off-site distribution center.

Later we opened a thrift store where our clients work along with staff to sort, label and stock items daily. Our goal is to continue to provide quality services for individuals in need.


There is something in all of us that loves a bargain. The perfect place to discover hidden treasures is EastArk's Thrift Barn. Gently used clothing for men, women and children, along with housewares, linens and furniture make shopping at the Thrift Barn a bargain hunter's dream.If you would like to leave a message, click here.
