HOMES / Supported Independent Living


We are people with and without disabilities who share life together in family-like settings in Homes or in Supported Independent Living (SIL) (shared accommodation or individual apartments) in a faith-based and multi-generational environment.  L'Arche actively creates an intentional community in which we share our lives and spend our days working, sharing meals, enjoying leisure activities and holiday times together.


Our structure of providing care consists of live-in and live-out assistants in the homes, relief people, and volunteers.  We are blessed with a network of faithful relationships with involvement of family and friends.


L’Arche Stratford welcomes adults with a developmental disability who live in Perth and Huron counties. The individuals we welcome need to have the desire to participate in communal life with others of varying skills and abilities. 


All of our homes are located in pleasant, quiet residential neighbourhoods.  Our homes are each uniquely personalized with traditions, histories and a richness of their own.  Each has truly become “home” to the people who live there.
