L'Arche Chicago



L'Arche communities are places where those with disabilities, called core members, and those who share life with them, called assistants live together in a faith-based community. Assistants usually come for a minimum of a year. Experience with people with disabilities is not a requirement. For us, some of the most important criteria are an open heart, willingness to learn, commitment to personal growth, and belief in the unique sacredness and value of every individual

Mission: The Mission of L'Arche is:To make known the gifts of people with developmental disabilities,Revealed through mutually transforming relationships.To engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a human society.To foster community that is inspired by the core values in our founding storyand responds to the changing needs of our members.
