L'ARCHE IS A WAY OF LIFE, BUT IT'S ALSO A MODEL OF CARE THAT IS UNIQUE.

ABOUT L’ARCHE

In our community people with intellectual disabilities are at the heart of L'Arche. They're not clients, patients, or recipients of services, but rather they are friends, teachers, and companions.

People with intellectual disabilities grow through their encounters in L'Arche. Through daily acts of care, trust, and friendship, they develop into ambassadors of compassion and leaders for social change and the common good.

A divided society is mended through inclusivity; where people with many differences–social-economic status, race, religion, and intellectual capacity–live and work together.
