L'Arche Atlanta

L'Arche is an International Federation dedicated to the creation and growth of homes, programs, and support networks with people who have intellectual disabilities. The aim of L’Arche is to create communities which welcome people who have intellectual disabilities. By this means, L’Arche seeks to respond to the distress of those who are too often rejected, and to give them a valid place in society.

L'Arche is a way of life and a model of care that is unique ... adults with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities share life and friendships in community. In the L'Arche Atlanta community, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (who we call core members) are not clients, patients, or recipients of services. Instead, they are friends, teachers, and companions, who, through daily acts of care, trust, and friendship, develop into ambassadors of compassion and leaders for social change.
