Change the world one heart at a time

Over the last fifty years, L’Arche has grown from one small community in France to 152 communities worldwide. Throughout this time L’Arche has been living a unique model of community with, and care for, persons with intellectual disabilities. Whether through the day to day life of a shared home, or through daily workshops and outreach programs, L’Arche’s way of being together has proven extremely fruitful for persons with intellectual disabilities, whose gifts are recognized and celebrated. It has also proven extremely fruitful for the assistants and friends of the community, who are often transformed by the mutuality of relationships.
