We, at Cornerstone Housing Society — A L’Arche Project, have been living the L’Arche philosophy with our core members. Core member is the name used in a L’Arche community for a member with intellectual disabilities, because they are the core of the community. Cornerstone Housing Society has been in the St. John’s region for about five years and recently received status as a project of L’Arche. We hope that in the near future we will have a L’Arche home in the area. The emphasis here is the word “with” — one of the key words at L’Arche. We do as much as is possible with the core members within our community and in the larger community.
Anybody who would like to join us — even be it only to check us out — is very welcome. We have monthly meetings of social get-togethers, activities and town-hall style meetings as well. To find out more about us, who we are and what we are, about please visit www.facebook.com/larcheprojectchsnl, or www.cornerstonehousingsociety.ca or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
