After 45 years of vibrant community living, L’Arche Toronto is ready to welcome additional persons with intellectual disabilities (core members) to join our community. Here they will find home and will engage with Toronto’s wider community in a more direct and mutually enriching way.
L’Arche Toronto is currently home to 21 core members who live with assistants in four detached residential homes in East Toronto. These older homes are multi-story structures that have not kept pace with the needs of those with mobility challenges.
Since 2015, L’Arche Toronto has been exploring new housing models that are attractive,accessible, cost-effective and community-friendly for L’Arche Toronto’s future housing.
A new home, approximately 4,000 square feet, all on a single floor in a new condominium development project, has been identified as one that could be adapted to welcome five core members and three assistants.
Such an opportunity has now become available in Regent Park, located in the heart of Toronto. This condominium in the Artworks Tower is located at 130 River Street.
The campaign EVERYONE BELONGS! will raise $3.8 million over the next three years to create a more inclusive community in Toronto.
Over the next few months we would like to secure leadership gifts towards this campaign. We have already received over $333,926.42 and hope to raise $2,000,000 by October 31th including government grants. Please join us on this journey and help build on an extraordinary legacy!
