L'Arche creates communities where people with and without disabilities share life together. 

Relationships of trust and mutuality are at the heart of what we do.

L'Arche Frederick envisions a community of loving homes where people with and without disabilities live and work together as peers; create an inclusive community of faith and friendship; and transform society through relationships that cross social boundaries



The mission of L'Arche is to make known the gifts of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, revealed through mutually transforming relationships; to respond to the changing needs of our members, while being faithful to the core values of our founding story; and to engage in our diverse cultures, working together towards a more human society. 

We are people, with and without intellectual disabilities, sharing life in communities belonging to an International Federation. Mutual relationships and trust in God are at the heart of our journey together. We celebrate the unique value of every person and recognize our need for one another.
