Jubilee House is a small household in Courtenay where people who have developmental disabilities (core members) and those who come to assist (assistants) share life and daytime activities together in a family-like setting.
Each person contributes to the house life as they are able. Home life is the cornerstone of L’Arche. Evening meals, birthdays and times of prayer are small but cherished celebrations that strengthen the bonds between the people sharing the home.
More than just inclusion, our philosophy is about making the most of life! Living with others emphasizes what a person can accomplish, give and learn. Just as in a family, all members of the community are responsible for the group’s well-being. Go to the Get Involved page if you would like to learn more about becoming a L’Arche Assistant.
