WHAT IS L'ARCHE?   

L'Arche is a private, not-for-profit organization for the creation and development of homes and support programs for people who have physical or intellectual disabilities. L’Arche is organized into regional and national groups of independent, locally operated communities that may include one or more homes, apartments and/or day programs.  L'Arche is an interfaith organization, open to people of any faith and people with no religious affiliation. There are more than 150 active L’Arche communities worldwide. 

We at L'Arche are people with and without intellectual disabilities, sharing life in communities belonging to an International Federation. We seek to:

  • Make known the gifts of people with intellectual disabilities, revealed through mutually transforming relationships;
  • Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members;
  • Engage in our diverse cultures, working toward a more human society.


IS L'ARCHE ACTIVE IN THE TWIN CITIES?

YES!!   L'Arche is NEW to Minnesota and L'Arche Twin Cities was incorporated as a nonprofit in May 2020. 

L’Arche Twin Cities is an inclusive community-in-formation where adults with and without intellectual disabilities share life and friendships. We will have a home and community-based services model. We are currently a 100% volunteer effort.

The near-term goals of L’Arche Twin Cities are to:

  • Continue to build community.  We plan for multiple friendraiser/fundraiser events in the coming year. Please visit our website and social media for updates!
  • Raise funds over the next 12 months to hire an executive director and support start-up costs
  • Begin to provide services in 2023
