Interested in living together with adults with intellectual disabilities in a faith community founded on the Beatitudes? L’Arche USA enables people with and without disabilities to share their lives in communities of faith and friendship. Community members are transformed through relationships of mutuality, respect, and companionship as they live, work, and play together.
L'Arche is seeking new assistants to come and live in our communities across the United States. Compensation includes room and board, health care, and a modest stipend.
Previous experience with individuals with disabilities is not a requirement. For us, some of the most important criteria are an open heart, willingness to learn, commitment to personal growth, and belief in the unique sacredness and value of every individual.
