Thank you for your recent donation to L’Arche Chicago. Here at L’Arche, we strive to merge quality care and mutual relationships, working to build a community where everyone has a genuine place of belonging. Our world needs examples of joyful, inclusive communities, and your donation is an integral part in sharing the light of L’Arche with the world. We are grateful for you.

The funding that we receive in the state of Illinois does not cover all of the costs that accompany the full, happy lives that each person, with and without intellectual disabilities, deserves. L’Arche is a unique model of care in the world of disability services, and it is through support of friends like you that we are able to work each day to reveal the truth that all people, including those with disabilities, have gifts to share.

Your donation helps us create homes are comfortable, accessible, and reflective of the many unique people that comprise them. Your generous support allows us to recruit, hire, and retain loving, committed assistants who are trained to provide the highest quality of care. And your gift empowers us to continue to deepen our roots and share our light with the world.

As always, we invite you to grow in friendship with us. If you would like to join us for a community night or a dinner in one of our homes, please reach out! We would love to have you. Together, we can build a world that celebrates the unique and sacred value of every person.

With deep gratitude,


Mic Altena
