L'Arche Hamilton

EVERYONE BELONGS

Did you know that persons with developmental disabilities are moving us forward? They present challenges to different aspects of our society: employment, healthcare, education, sports, media, community integration and new norms of social acceptance. In response to these challenges, we are called to think differently and find more innovative and empowering developments towards inclusion.

L’Arche Hamilton transforms lives through a community-based approach in providing supports and services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Founded on the principles of welcome and inclusion, we provide daily living and employment support, as well as a Creative Arts program called Creative Hands Studio to people with developmental disabilities.

Mutual relationships are at the heart of L’Arche Hamilton, and our Assistants, volunteers, friends and donors help make them happen. Join us now in celebrating each person’s gifts and uniqueness. Together, we can create a society where everyone belongs!

“The secret of L’Arche is relationship: meeting people, not through the filters of certitude, ideologies, idealism or judgments but heart to heart; listening to people with their pain, their joy their hope, their history; listening to their hearts beat.”
