L’Arche Canada Foundation’s Spring 2018 Impact Bulletin
L’Arche Toronto recognized the need for opportunities for young people with intellectual disabilities to explore options for living a more independent life in their city. The Trying It On For Size (TIFS) project is responding to this need. TIFS provides individuals with intellectual disabilities (primarily aged 25-40) support to gain experience living more independently through short-term stays in an apartment where they will develop confidence in their independent living and decision-making skills.
