About Us

 L'Arche welcomes Assistants to live, work, and learn together with men and women with intellectual disabilities in our communities.  Founded by Jean Vanier in 1964, L'Arche strives to shape a more human and just society.

"Community Assistant"  Role description

"Assistants" support core members (men and women with intellectual disabilities) in their daily life.  We cook and eat dinner together, get together with friends, participate in activities in our neighborhoods, go on vacation together, and celebrate often.

Through  friendship and relationships  with Core Members, Assistants gain valuable life skills and opportunities for personal growth and leadership.

More than a job, we offer an exceptional and life changing adventure in friendship and self-discovery.
