What We Do


L'Arche is a worldwide network of 149 communities in 38 countries that include men and women with intellectual disabilities and thousands of Assistants who support them.

L'Arche provides home, friendship, and support for people in our communities, both with and without an intellectual disability.

L'Arche ensures that every person has the opportunity to develop their unique talents and gifts.

In L'Arche, we share life supporting one another, working and having fun together, and finding the joy and belonging we all need.

The life-changing friendships that develop between Assistants and our Core Members with intellectual disabilities are central to our lives together.

In L'Arche, we see and discover a spiritual meaning in day-to-day life.

In L'Arche, we educate and advocate for the rights of all marginalized people and strive shape a more human society.
