L’Arche Homefires began in Wolfville, a small University town located about one hour west of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1981. We are a community of 5 homes in the local area, a candle-making workshop (Applewicks), a day program (Cornerstone) and a small retirement program (Discoveries). We sell candles and weaving in our store on Gaspereau Ave. Presently we provide home for 20 core members (people with disabilities) as well as welcoming assistants from many countries of the world.
L’Arche Homefires is an ecumenical Christian community with members from many different faith traditions. We focus on the importance of our relationships with each other. We provide support and guidance for people and we receive a great deal from the people we serve. We celebrate together and perform the daily tasks of living together, whether cooking, shopping, and meal preparation. In L’Arche we see the importance of doing things with people rather than for people.
