We need your help to keep our front-line community support workers (assistants) healthy, safe and refreshed so that they can continue to provide caring day-to-day support to keep persons with intellectual disabilities in our four homes healthy and safe from COVID-19. Your support now will help provide adequate personal protective equipment, safe transport to and from work, and safe respite in hotels for live-in workers. These extraordinary costs to combat COVID-19 are rising daily and we need to cover these costs so that when things return to normal we are able to carry out our full programming as before. Please ensure our foundation for the future. CLICK HERE TO DONATE.
L’Arche Toronto was founded on intuition – a ‘gut’ feeling that the message of L’Arche had places to go. This same spirit of adventure and risk, and the conviction that all people have something to offer became the momentum that has manifested in the creative arts program of L’Arche Toronto, Sol Express. Sol Express joins together the movement, voice, music, art, theatre, and dance of individuals with developmental disabilities into creative expressions on themes such as hope and belonging.
