Snapshot of Our Community Life
Our community consists of 8 homes in Richmond Hill, Ontario. All of our homes are within 5 minutes walking distance of other L’Arche homes, and close to public transportation, libraries, restaurants, and gyms. Richmond Hill is located about an hour away from Toronto. There are 37 core members (persons with intellectual disabilities) who have a home at Daybreak, living along with 32 – 34 assistants in our homes. Today, about half of our assistants come from other countries.
We also have 5 Day Programs where core members engage in a wide range of activities: making craft products, developing social skills, producing surveyor stakes, and expressive arts. Recruitment for positions in the Day Programs occurs less frequently than for the Homes.
