RIVER HOUSE IN REGENT PARK
After 49 years of vibrant community living, L’Arche Toronto Homes Inc. is ready to welcome 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.
Our new home, River House is approximately 4,400 square feet in area, all on a single floor in a new condominium development and was designed to welcome five core members and three assistants (direct support workers) to a fully-accessible, barrier-free and inclusive lifestyle. There will be eight bedrooms, three bathrooms, an office, a media room, laundry facilities ensuite, and same floor access to the building’s recreation and community facilities.
This custom-designed unit in the Daniels Corporation’s Artworks Tower is nearing completion with an expected closing date of July 2023.

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 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
