HOMES / Supported Independent Living


In our homes, people with developmental disabilities and those who come to assist them, live in family-like settings in Group Homes or in  Supported Independent Living (SIL) (shared accommodation or on their own) in a faith-based and multigenerational environment.  L’Arche actively creates an intentional Community in which we share our lives and spend our days working, having leisure 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 County. 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, and each has truly become “home” to the people who live there.
