To offer better work and recreation opportunities , the community relocated to Yarralumla , in Canberra , in 1980 . It bought its own home at Chifley in 1982 , and two years later , in 1984 , opened a second home . A third home was established in 1986 .
Today L ’ Arche Genesaret maintains three houses and two self-contained flats in the Canberra suburbs of Chifley and Curtin , providing accommodation for thirteen people with disability .
