Become a Core Member

L’Arche is unique in many ways and is unlike most other agencies. A “core member” in L’Arche may be called a “resident” or “client” in another organization, but as our members are at the core of our mission we choose to name this out loud in the language we use in our homes. Likewise, as other agencies and services may call their employees “staff”, we choose to use language that best describes the relationships that are lived and experienced in our community and call our employees “assistants”. 

Funding to live in one of our homes, or attend one of our programs is provided by the Government of Nova Scotia. When a vacancy is available, L’Arche Antigonish works in unison with the Department of Social and Community Services to fill the space. If you would like more information, or to tour one of our homes and/or programs please contact us at 902-863-5000.
