L'Arche seeks Home Stays. L'Arche Genesaret, a community in the Woden area for people with and without intellectual disabilities, relies on the generosity of young people, often from overseas, to spend a year in the community as Assistants (carers). They require a "home stay host" who can open their home for two days a week (e.g. 1pm Tuesdays to 1pm Thursdays) and four days a month (e.g. Monday to Friday) to enable an Assistant to have some re-creative time away. The requirements are simply a home where a single Assistant can relax, come and go, and have meals during their days away. If you can assist in this regard, please contact Lyn Kelly on 6282 9066, or Stewart Betts This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
