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.

As some of you know, L'Arche Erie helps supports many developing L'Arche communities worldwide.  While L'Arche Erie supports many countries, we have a special relationship with our friends from L'Arche Mexico (El Arca de Mexico).  Students from Gannon University and representatives from L'Arche Erie make a journey to L'Arche Mexico each year.  This year we want to celebrate them and help raise funds for many other International L'Arche Communities.  Join us for this special event to help support our international L'Arche friends.
