WAYS TO GIVE
The Government of Ontario - MCCSS (Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services) provides funding towards basic structures such as staffing, however your donation will support important activities and programs that are not funded by the government, all of which contribute to L’Arche’s unique approach to providing care for adults with intellectual disabilities and fostering an intentional community.

Social inclusion, connection, and increased feelings of well-being, self-efficacy and esteem are all benefits of co-living with others!

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.
L’Arche Toronto’s Trying It on For Size (TIFS) program is an innovative well rounded approach to exploring how to live independently. Through a person-centered curriculum and experiential learning, participants increase their confidence and their capacity to discover their own places of belonging.
You can use the power of your will to change the world with a charitable gift while still supporting those you love.
