Community Participation Program


L’Arche Sudbury has always been an advocate for ensuring people’s needs are met in the most ethical and responsible way.
As of April 1st, 2015 L’Arche began implementing shifts to our Vocational Program to better meet the changing needs of our members. Our new program is currently labeled the Community Participation Services and Supports Program, (CPP)  We currently provide day support to adults over the age of 18 who are deemed eligible for support through Developmental Service Ontario. We are able to assist people to add meaningful activities throughout their day and while doing this also create awareness about L’Arche as we become a more visible presence in our local city.
We continue to provide Vocational Services to support people who have a desire to work or volunteer. We have been mandated to support people of all gifts and abilities. We will continue to help people find meaningful places to work or volunteer in our community with the support of a L’Arche Program Assistant, however our service have expanded to include the following:

  • Activities such as personal development, basic life skills training, social and recreational activities, volunteering and other activities that leads to community participation.
  • Assistance for individuals who have left school, by providing, innovative community participation.
  • To support the development of personal individual support plan (ISP) based on the principles of self-determination, social inclusion, citizenship, choice and to provide services that are reflective of the plan.

Our program, in the near future will provide purchased supports and services via Passport Mentoring Service Funding.  We ask that all participants inquire about this funding through the Developmental Services of Ontario (DSO).  This funding will help us expand the variety of community outlets we pursue.

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.” ― Jean Vanier, Community & Growth
