Come and see...

As we are revealing the dignity of every human being by building a community of faith and belonging where people with and without intellectual disabilities live together in family-stye homes.

L'Arche is Different

L'Arche is Different


 

L'Arche is a way of life, but it's also a model of care that is unique. 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.

Come And See


 

Come and see the L'Arche difference. Join us on the second Thursday of each month at Peace House for an open house of new and old friends. We gather at 7pm to share time enjoying good food and good conversation. We'd love to welcome you too for a visit to our home!

Come and see how we've been transformed through relationships of mutuality, respect, and companionship as we live, work, pray, and play together:
