Tamarack (Day Program)
The Day Program is called Tamarack and currently hosts 13 core members from 9:30am-3:30pm, Monday to Friday, who form the center of their fun, active, and welcoming community. Many of the participants live in our L’Arche Calgary homes, and others live in various parts of Calgary.
The Day Program provides an empowering community for individuals to flourish in, as an alternative to/or in addition to the traditional work environment.
At Tamarack, our activities are planned on a group and individual basis, with core members playing an active role in determining goals, activities, and outings. Art and music therapy play a large part in the rhythm of the Day Program, as does participation in community service projects. Some of our core members work and volunteer on a regular basis, sharing their gifts with the community. Overall, our Day Program seeks to build relationships and engage with other people in the broader community.
Volunteers play a key role in enhancing the Day Program experience.
