About L'Arche Canada Foundation:

Founded in 2001, L’Arche Canada Foundation raises money for housing and supporting Canadian adults with intellectual disabilities. In F2017, the foundation reports that it distributed $1.5 million to L’Arche Canada and $0.8 million to smaller L’Arche community organizations across Canada. L’Arche is one of only two national organizations providing residential programs and outreach services to Canadians with intellectual disabilities.

L’Arche Canada operates 200 homes, housing 528 adults. Clients arrive at L’Arche homes when their parents die or are too ill to act as a caregiver. Alternatively, some people finishing high school begin adult life and increase their independence through living in the organized homes. L’Arche homes are located in nine provinces, with the newest location in Newfoundland and Laborador. For 271 individuals who are still living at home, L’Arche provides support in finding work and a recreational day program.
