L'Arche Calgary Community
L’Arche Calgary is comprised of several parts that come together to form our community. We have homes where people with and without disabilities share life together. In each home are typically 3-4 Core Members who share their home with 3-4 Assistants. We also have a Day Program where core members go to work, learn or express themselves artistically. We also have a Supported Independent Living Program designated for people with disabilities who feel they need more independence than is possible living in one of the homes.
In L’Arche, we cook and eat dinner together, get together with friends, participate in activities in our neighborhoods, go on vacation together, and celebrate often. Our community is led by a Community Leader and other members of the leadership team who provide support and ensure the well-being of all persons in our community.
