L’Arche Genesaret celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2018, and has been a quiet but constant presence in Canberra for many years. It offers supported living in community households together with a rich social and cultural life, for adults living with intellectual disability who are looking to lead full and rewarding lives in friendship with others who are seeking community and connection.

L’Arche Genesaret also operates a social enterprise: The Hub in Phillip. The Hub seeks to create a venue for social and cultural purposes where people with an intellectual disability are hosts and owners of the space and where an inclusive experience of community and creative expression can grow and flourish. Currently the Hub offers drama classes, art and craft classes, a Women’s and Men’s Group. In time, the Hub aims to work towards incubating arts-based micro-businesses and other social enterprises.
