Women and men with physical and intellectual disabilities need accessible transportation in order to get where they need and want to go! Be it to their day programs, their employment or volunteer positions, or to visit Variety Village to have a swim with their L’Arche support assistant. An accessible vehicle also ensures that people with mobility challenges can easily reach their various medical appointments and are able to participate in recreational outings.
L’Arche Toronto’s aging wheelchair-accessible van needs to be replaced. It has faithfully transported numerous individuals on a daily or weekly basis over many years. Vans should ideally be replaced every eight to ten years in order to ensure their safety and reliability. Without these vehicles, our core members’ quality of life would suffer tremendously; and as the women and men we support age, the need increases. In other words, L’Arche Toronto cannot deliver on its mission to ‘create a world where everyone belongs’ without the ongoing support of a new fully accessible wheelchair van.
An additional $23,000 would allow us to purchase a new van. Please help by making a donation today.
