Homes

There are five L’Arche homes in Calgary for adults with developmental disabilities. We call our residents core members and they live in the homes with their live-in Assistants who come to share life with us from all around the globe. Our homes are located close to the Chinook Centre and are about 5 Km south of downtown Calgary. All homes are easily accessible to each other.

L'Arche homes are where the "mutuality of relationships" comes to life every day. We introduce spirituality, welcome guests and neighbours, keep conversations flowing while eating meals together with families and friends, pray together, celebrate birthdays and other milestones, share daily chores, plan outings and invite others to go on walks. Our core members and Assistants will always remember their home as a place of belonging and a place to celebrate the unique gifts of each occupant. Our weekends are packed full with bowling, movies, going to concerts, and exploring the natural playground just a short distance from the city.

All of our homes are fully licensed and maintain high standards of care. L'Arche works with health professionals and government bodies to ensure the safety and quality of life of each person with a disability.

Haeremai

Haeremai means 'welcome' in Maori and the welcome mat is always visible. The original duplex was renovated to a single family house. The members enjoy the garden and sit under the backyard gazebo while relaxing and enjoying each others company.
