L’Arche Winnipeg began in 1973. Our community has grown over the years, and today we welcome 25 people with a developmental disability who are living in our six houses and one supported-living apartment, along with approximately 30 assistants, many of whom have come from other countries to experience L’Arche and make Winnipeg their home.
Four of our houses, our apartment, and our Office are in the east end of Winnipeg (Transcona) and are all within walking distance of each other. Our two other homes are closer to downtown Winnipeg (in Windsor Park and St. Boniface).
At L’Arche, people with and without intellectual disabilities live, work, and learn together, creating communities of friendship and belonging. We foster mutual relationships, celebrate the unique value of every person, and strive for a world where everyone can belong and contribute.
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, and groups. Volunteers receive orientation about L’Arche and are connected to a house or program.
