At McKim House, assistants come to share life in community: that is, to share daily life with the other members of the home – people with and without intellectual disabilities – in the context of a community that also involves friends, volunteers, and associate members. Daily life at McKim House includes the activities of cooking, cleaning, and laundry; meetings and times of prayer; and supporting those with disabilities in all areas of their life, as needed – both at home and out in the broader community.

Assistants come with some training and experience, and will develop new skills and deeper understanding throughout their time here. L’Arche Saint John is an ecumenical Christian community that welcomes assistants from a broad range of backgrounds. We seek people open to learning and growing, meeting new challenges, discovering their own and others’ gifts, and being transformed by sometimes unexpected friendships. 

Remuneration, benefits, days away and vacation time are provided.  For more information, and to apply online, visit L'Arche Canada's recruitment website! We apologize, but only applications processed online will be considered.
