New Community Leader for L’Arche Homefires

Posted 2021-02-05

We want to welcome and introduce you to the new Community Leader for L’Arche Homefires, Louise Curtis. After an extensive and rigorous selection process, Louise clearly emerged as the leader the L’Arche Homefires community needs at this point in our history.

Louise herself writes:

Kia ora koutou,

Thank you for choosing me to join the L'Arche Homefires family.  I am a Kiwi [from new Zealand] who had the good fortune to marry a Canadian, and we currently live in North Vancouver. We are both excited about the move to Nova Scotia and look forward to being a part of the beautiful community of Wolfville for many years.

 

My background includes extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector, primarily in social and health care settings. I am passionate about providing innovative, inclusive and responsive leadership that supports the organization to meet the needs of staff and stakeholders, to grow, and to respond to challenges we may face along the way. I find great joy in supporting personal development and growth and encouraging creativity.

I think my personal approach can be summed up best by a short Māori proverb from my homeland:

He aha te mea nui o te ao? (What is the most important thing in the world?)

He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata. (It is people, it is people, it is people)

 

I feel privileged to be joining you and look forward to meeting you soon.
