L’Arche (French for ‘The Ark’) is a faith community that makes explicit the dignity of every human being by building inclusive communities where people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities share life together. Community members are transformed through relationships of mutuality, respect, and companionship as they live, work, pray and play together.
People with intellectual and developmental disabilities are at the heart of L’Arche. They are not clients, patients, or recipients of services, but rather they are friends and teachers. People without intellectual and developmental disabilities grow through their encounters in L’Arche. Through daily acts of care, trust, and friendship, we develop into ambassadors of compassion and leaders of social change and the common good.
Here at L’Arche Boston North, we strive to make the ordinary moments of each day – cooking, attending appointments, going out for coffee - a bit more extraordinary by doing it together.
Companion Assistants in L'Arche spend time with and provide care for adults with intellectual disabilities in our homes.
Companion Assistants learn invaluable skills related to emotional intelligence and teamwork while building relationships with a diverse network of people.
If you are looking for a place where your gifts and faith are not only embraced, but celebrated, and you have a compassionate spirit and a willingness to learn and grow, L’Arche could be the perfect fit for your next opportunity. No previous experience required!
