The race is on!

In L'Arche, people who have developmental disabilities and those who come to assist share life and daytime activities together in family-like settings that are integrated into local neighbourhoods.

This photo essay was done in the 1970's for the Winnipeg Tribune. L'Arche has grown immensely since then.
