L'Arche Winnipeg

L'Arche Winnipeg began in 1973.  The L'Arche community has grown over the years, and today welcomes 28 people with a developmental disability who are living in six houses and two supported living apartments, along with approximately 20 assistants, many of whom have come from other countries to experience L'Arche and make Winnipeg their home.  Four of the houses, the apartments, and the office are in the east end of Winnipeg (Transcona) and are all within walking distance of each other.  The two other homes are closer to downtown Winnipeg (in Windsor Park and St. Boniface). 

Ronald McDonald House Winnipeg

Ronald McDonald House Winnipeg is a home away from home for out-of-town families whose children are undergoing treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses at the Children’s Hospital in Winnipeg. The House is a warm, welcoming home away from home where parents can relax, prepare a hot meal and share their concerns with other parents in similar situations. Recovering children and their parents are never far away from each other and this brings comfort to everyone.
