REGENT PARK HOME
After 48 years of vibrant community living, L’Arche Toronto Homes Inc. is ready to welcome additional persons with intellectual disabilities (core members) who have been on the long waiting list for a new home. These individuals will have the opportunity to engage with the L’Arche Toronto community and with Toronto’s wider community in a more direct and mutually enriching way.
Starting in 2015, L’Arche Toronto Homes Inc. explored new housing models that are attractive, accessible, cost-effective and community-friendly for L’Arche Toronto’s future growth.
A new home, approximately 4,000 square feet, all on a single floor in a new condominium development was designed to welcome five core members and three assistants (direct support workers) in order to provide a fully-accessible, barrier-free and inclusive lifestyle. This unit will have eight bedrooms, three bathrooms, an office, a media room, laundry facilities ensuite, two emergency exits and same floor access to the building’s recreation and community facilities.
This innovative housing project is in the heart of Toronto in Regent Park. The custom-designed unit in the Daniels Corporation’s Artworks Tower is nearing completion with an expected occupancy of April 2023.
The campaign EVERYONE BELONGS! is raising $3.8 million to purchase and furnish the home and bring this opportunity to fruition and to create a more inclusive community in Toronto.
Please join us on this journey and help build on an extraordinary legacy!
L'Arche Toronto is thrilled to share that we have received a $100,000 donation from The Daniels Corporation towards our EVERYONE BELONGS capital campaign. The project is currently under construction and will bring our community a fifth home in Regent Park, early next year. Recently, a small group had the opportunity to tour the 4,000 square foot condo unit and take part in the cheque presentation. View the online gallery of the tour and cheque presentation here.

L'Arche Toronto Announces Donation from The Daniels Corporation
EVERYONE BELONGS! L’ARCHE TORONTO’S CAMPAIGN TO CREATE A PLACE TO LIVE, GATHER AND GROW. A new model of inclusive community living in Toronto. The campaign will raise $3.8 million over the next three years to create a more inclusive community in Toronto by opening a condominium home in Regent Park for five individuals with intellectual disabilities and three assistants.
A donation of securities or mutual fund shares is the most efficient way to give charitably since the capital gains tax does not apply. Your security or mutual fund donation means a larger donation for L'Arche Toronto and it also means a larger charitable tax receipt for you. Please call Caroline or use the Canada Helps button above.
You can make a one-time gift, or make a pledge over three to five years using this pledge form.
Cheques made out to L’Arche Toronto Homes Inc. may be mailed to 186 Floyd Avenue, Toronto ON M4J 2J1 Attention: Caroline Hughey
