L’Arche creates residences and programs for people with developmental disabilities. It builds communities where people with and without disabilities share life. It seeks to end loneliness and isolation among people with disabilities, one individual at a time.

L’Arche Comox Valley is embarking on a campaign to raise funds to build new homes for fifteen people and an expanded Outreach and Creative Arts Centre.  At the Centre, those with and without disabilities can develop and share their talents, helping everyone to contribute to their community to the full extent of their capability.

L’Arche people believe that joy and celebration are an essential part of every person’s life and this festive evening will be a chance for all to experience this.
