This GivingTuesday, help us transform lives in Saint John.
Do you envision a more just, compassionate, and vibrant world that includes persons with intellectual disabilities?
At L'Arche Saint John, we celebrate adults with intellectual disabilities and build circles of support around them.
When persons with intellectual disabilities take their place at the table, they contribute to a more just, compassionate, and vibrant world for all.
“Being a part of Creative Connections is a life-changing thing for me. Creative Connections helps people with disabilities understand that they can do many great things – they can do more than people expect them to.”
- Warren Tompkins, artist at Creative Connections
"With each encounter, I'm just astonished at the level of kindness, patience, compassion and care that core members receive. It's the best thing you could imagine for your family member. It really is."
- Connie Keyes, sister of McKim House member Sarah Keyes
Staff Support & Development
"While this opportunity offered challenges, such as learning new ways of communication and conflict resolution, the most challenging part of all was having to say goodbye. Living at McKim House is easily one of my favourite experiences."
- Paige Vowels, former live-in assistant
On GivingTuesday, give $75 or more, and we'll gift you a pack of holiday cards designed by artists with intellectual disabilities!
Your gift has a tangible impact on the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.
Working in partnership with organizations including New Brunswick Association for Community Living, Saint John Non-Profit Housing, and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, we're working hard to be a part of the solution to a growing crisis in Saint John: affordable and supportive housing and day programs with adults with intellectual disabilities.
But we can't do it without your support. Will you help us build a more inclusive Saint John?
