L’Arche Greater Vancouver, a small non-profit organization with the vision to create an intentional community of people with and without developmental disabilities, is seeking a full-time live-in House Assistant.
L’Arche welcomes Assistants to live, work, and learn together with men and women with developmental disabilities in our communities. Founded in 1964, L'Arche strives to shape a more human and just society.
"Assistants" support core members (men and women with developmental disabilities) in their daily life. Responsibilities will include providing personal care, helping to support positive social interactions, providing social, recreational and leisure activities, meal preparations and household tasks. We cook and eat dinner together, get together with friends, participate in activities in our neighborhoods, go on vacation together, and celebrate often.
Through friendship and relationships with our members with developmental disabilities, Assistants gain valuable life skills and opportunities for personal growth and leadership.
More than a job, we offer an exceptional and life changing adventure in friendship and self-discovery.
We are looking for people who want to spend time with adults with developmental disabilities, work cooperatively in a multicultural environment and be part of a community.
If you are caring, compassionate, reliable, and want to make a difference in someone's life, we would like to hear from you!
