A Goal To Welcome More Core Members
We're growing to do our part to meet the need for community of thousands of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Your investment in the mission of L'Arche can assist us by covering the cost of two new core members for the next year. These new members will be able to experience the life changing love, care, support, and community that L'Arche provides.
While the State of Illinois provides some financial assistance for housing and care for people with disabilities, the difference between the actual costs for room and board (mortgage, groceries, and household supplies) and the amount reimbursed to us by the State is around $24,000 per core member for a year.
Be A Part of a Lifelong Impact
You can be a part of the incredible impact L'Arche has on these two new core members (and their families!) by investing in L'Arche as we seek to provide the community and care that everyone deserves.
Please consider making a one-time, monthly, or annual contribution to assist L'Arche in its mission to make a difference in the lives people with developmental disabilities while helping people with disabilities make a difference in their community.
Here's how various levels of monthly donations assists the L'Arche Community:
- $10 a month ($120) provides access to advocacy conferences for a community member
- $20 a month ($240) covers meals out for a year for a core member
- $30 a month ($360) allows a community member to attend a retreat sponsored by L'Arche USA
- $50 a month ($600) provides groceries and supplies for two community members for a month
- $100 a month ($1,200) funds the gap between state funding and the actual medical expenses for ALL core members for a YEAR!
