L'Arche Winnipeg

Gateway to the West, the community of L’Arche Winnipeg is full of joy, of a joie de vivre and celebration that springs from the hearts of its members.

L'Arche Winnipeg began in 1973 and is today a community comprised of 6 houses and 2 apartments where 27 members with a developmental disability have found a caring home living with approximately 25 assistants.

We are people, young and old, married and single, from varying cultural and religious backgrounds, who choose to live faithful and life-giving relationships with those who have a developmental disability, affirming their place and importance in our society.
