Be Belong Become Capital Campaign




L'Arche is about being in relationships that transform our lives and transform our society!

The Be Belong Become Campaign will bring to reality L'Arche Stratford's vision for its property at 426 Britannia Street.

The 20,000 sq. ft. former Montessori school will become the central gathering space for our community...

• The upper level will be transformed into six accessible living suites allowing us to welcome more individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to share life together.

• The main level is designated for our administrative offices, and also includes a large, bright studio and full-size gymnasium. We look forward to opening up some of this space as rental opportunities for the wider community.

• The lower level gives us lots of space to transform from a day program to an activity space to offer more opportunities and welcome more individuals seeking support.  We will be able to offer a wide choice of activities that respond to the gifts and interests of people from both L'Arche Stratford and the surrounding neighbourhood.

The campaign goal is $4.2 million, 80% of which will cover construction, 11% mortgage, and 9% campaign costs.

The need for support for individuals with intellectual disabilities in Perth-Huron is urgent.  To enable us to respond to this need and to bring our project to reality, we invite you to partner with us on this exciting project. A wide range of naming opportunities are available - contact us at or 519-271-9751 x224 for more information.

In today's world, we need signs of hope and places of transformation - places such as 426 Britannia. Come and join us on our journey of transformation!  Together, we are building a place of belonging.
