Current and Future Needs

L’Arche Daybreak makes a long-term commitment to those who make their homes in our communities. Planning to provide for the current and complex changing needs of our community members is essential. The Government of Ontario provides funding for the basic needs of our members, but the needs often outweigh existing resources. As time goes on, L’Arche Daybreak also hopes to expand existing day programs to include adults with an intellectual disability who continue to live with their families. It is through the faithful relationships and kind support of our neighbours and friends that we are able to responsibly plan for the future; that we can continue to live the commitment we have made to those who place their trust in us.

Government funding provides for the basic needs of our homes and programs, but the needs of our core members often outweigh existing resources.

Online donations are safe and secure, and help reduce the cost of our fundraising. L’Arche Daybreak is a registered charitable organization. Our charitable registration number is 12433 6041 RR0001.
