At L’Abri we are a family drawn from many places and with a variety of experiences.
Our residents are referred by hospitals, CLSCs, shelters or families, or candidates contact us themselves. They are mature adults able to live independently, but in need of social stimulation and support due to schizophrenia or other mental illnesses.
Our volunteers are caring people who learned about our project in their faith community, from friends, or through the media. Some have experienced mental illness in their families. Some have worked as nurses or social workers. Some are students. They are drawn to the warm inclusive atmosphere created by our skilled staff and volunteers.
