A Community of Caring

L’Arche Homefires is a community of five homes in Wolfville that demonstrates respect for all people, whatever their physical, mental and social abilities, by doing things with rather than for them. L’Arche community members perform the daily tasks of living together, such as cooking, celebrating and shopping. Founded in 1981, L’Arche Homefires includes Applewicks, a candle-making workshop; Cornerstone, a day program; and Discoveries, a small retirement program. The Harrison McCain Foundation has contributed to various projects at L’Arche Homefires since 2011, such as a wheelchair accessible vehicle, installing an elevator and smartboards.
