Willow Tree Community Inc. fosters community in the spirit of L’Arche with adults of varying intellectual abilities who share life, celebrate and grow with one another.
The first L'Arche community was established by Jean Vanier in Trosly, France in 1964 when he invited 2 men from an institution to live with him.
As of 2015, the L'Arche International Federation has 148 communities in 38 countries.
In Canada there are 29 communities, but currently only 1 other in New Brunswick (Saint John). Please help us establish a L'Arche home in Fredericton.
Willow Tree Community was formed in January 2010, became incorporated and obtained charitable status in 2013, and anticipates becoming a L'Arche "Project" in 2016.
We are currently raising funds to hire a Community Leader essential for initiating the L'Arche project in Fredericton.
