Jean Vanier is first and foremost committed to the person with an intellectual disability. www.jean-vanier.org
Now operating in 40 different countries round the world, L'Arche works closely with people with an intellectual disability so that each person can play their full role in society.
Turning dreams to reality, each of our 137 L'Arche communities is a springboard of opportunity where members with and without disabilities get customised support to discover, develop and share their unique - and often hidden- talents.
Individuals are invited to share fully in community life, in both residential and non-residential settings, as suited to specific needs and hopes. More than just inclusion, it is about making the most of life! We welcome you to our network. Together we can make it happen.
