Vision and Values

Transforming hearts and lives- L’Arche in a divided world wants to be a sign of hope.

Our mission is 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, whilst being faithful to the core values of our founding story.
  • Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society.

L’Arche communities help peoples’ lives to flourish, where each individual finds:

  • The dignity of being accepted
  • A real place of belonging
  • Skills so they can achieve their dreams.
