Transforming Care is a newly created 501 (C) (3) organization whose mission is to facilitate the creation of sustainable supports for individuals who need long-term care, thier families and caregivers so they can access the critical spiritual, material, and social resources needed to thrive in their homes and communities.
One of the goals of Transforming Care is to explore the possibility of bringing L’Arche to Buffalo. This organization is worldwide and has recently been successfully established in Long Island to serve individuals with self directed plans. The following information briefly describes L’Arche:
L’Arche communities in the United States provide homes and workplaces where people with and without intellectual disabilities live and work together as peers; create inclusive communities of faith and friendship; and transform society through relationships that cross social boundaries.
If you are interested in more information about a potential Buffalo community, we would be happy to meet with you individually to explain our vision and get your ideas and input.
