L'ARCHE CREATES SPACES OF BELONGING WHERE PEOPLE WITH AND WITHOUT INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES
SHARE LIFE TOGETHER.
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 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;
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.
