L’Arche’s work is simple, we invite people with and without intellectual disabilities to build communities together.
The IBC Suites is a a seven-unit housing community for adults with disabilities who are able to live independently with a few supports.
It occupied one half of the I Belong Centre, at 1465 Grieve Avenue in Courtenay. A Good Friend and Neighbour lives onsite, promoting intentional community with weekly shared meals, movie nights and impromptu social outings. The tenants of the IBC Suites have added new life to the L’Arche community and we are grateful for them.
All the suites are currently occupied, but if you are interested in living at the IBC Suites, you can contact the L’Arche CV office and have your name put on a waiting list.
You can become a friend of the Community and participate in our different events throughout the year, such as our weekly community prayer and potluck on Tuesday evenings.
L’Arche Comox Valley relies on the support of others who are like-hearted in living our mission. We need funds to ensure the functionality of our residences and offices.
Work and Live as an Assistant
More than a caregiver, the assistant shares his or her life with people who are less autonomous. Each year, we welcome assistants to join our community, usually for a one-year commitment.
