Take Action

Your support helps us maintain and update our homes, expand our programs and provide a place for our community members to share and celebrate their gifts.

Make a single gift

You can make your special gift to L’Arche Greater Vancouver online, by phone or by cheque in the mail.

Give monthly

Monthly giving is one of the best ways to make an impact all year long. It’s easy and convenient.

Your monthly gift will:
  • Take care of program and capital expenses the government doesn’t cover and that support quality of life.
  • Meet the changing needs of men and women with developmental disabilities, both in our homes and programs.
  • Develop our leadership team, home support teams and assistants with skill training opportunities that enable us to provide quality care.
  • Enable our community members to participate in retreats and other activities that contribute to personal growth.
  • Support property and vehicle upgrades to ensure they remain accessible, safe and comfortable.
