L'Arche Community USA
Assistants work to build a relationship of mutual care and support with persons with disabilities; foster a home life of unity, mutual respect and participation by all members; provide direct care supports and skill building for core members: personal care needs, money management, medical care, appointments, family and work connections, household chores, laundry, medications, meal preparation, and transportation.
Most assistants dedicate a year or two to L’Arche, although some of our communities welcome assistants for a shorter period of time. Some assistants also choose to renew their commitment at the end of that time. Because of the nature of L’Arche, building and fostering intentional relationship and community, a year or two offers community members time to settle into life together. There are also assistants that build a long-term home at L’Arche. The decision to continue living L’Arche is a thoughtful process for each assistant made with support from their peers, community coordinators, and others who surround the assistant in community.
