We’ve got a special fundraiser happening for Mother’s Day - Bake Mama Happy!, a zoom baking event. We’re excited about this event, first, because we love mothers, and second, because it’s a fun way to raise money to help adults with developmental disabilities reconnect.

Here at L’Arche CV, we’re recognizing that people who participate in our programs in non-Covid times have been among the hardest hit by social restrictions. They are looking for connection and a sense of belonging in our community, and L’Arche CV wants to provide the space and the activities to make it happen.
We’d love if you could share this with the folks at your church. There are exciting plans for summer and fall at the I Belong Centre, and we’d love your support to make them reality. Proceeds from the event will provide funding to restart the social and recreational programs that are so important to both the people who participate in our programs and the many volunteers who have also found a place to belong at the IBC.
