What is L'Arche
L'Arche homes are spirited and joyful places where everyone's gifts are fostered and valued. Human and spiritual values are both vibrantly alive, and friends form an extended family. Offering a life-long home and support to those with intellectual disabilities is the mission of every L'Arche community.
L'Arche Frederick has been growing our Community since 2009.
We have been leading monthly events at Saint Katharine Drexel Church in Frederick Maryland for the last five years, and looking to open our first home in 2020.
Our Mission is to
Make known the gifts of people with intellectual disabilities, revealed through mutual transforming relationships.
Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members, while being faithful to the core values of our founding story.
Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society.
