Current and Future Needs

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.

Your donation to L’Arche Daybreak augments funding received from the Government of Ontario for the needs of our homes and programs. Government funding provides for the basic needs of our homes and programs, but the needs of our core members often outweigh existing resources. General Donations are directed towards community projects which require additional funding and also helps to support community life activities that enhance the mission of L’Arche in living out the vision of Jean Vanier.

There are many ways you can support the Daybreak Community
