A L’Arche community is forming in the Chattahoochee Valley.
L'Arche is an international federation of communities in which people with an intellectual disability and those who help them can live, work, and share their lives together. L’Arche believes in the dignity of every person. This is expressed in a life shared between people with an intellectual disability and those choosing to join them in community. We seek to help each other to grow and develop toward our potential. Home life is at the heart of a L’Arche community. The different members of a community are called to be one body. They live, work, pray and celebrate together, sharing their joys and their suffering and forgiving each other, as in a family. They have a simple lifestyle that gives priority to relationships.
For more information or to become a part of our community, contact Bob Spano.  bob@bobspano.net or 706-304-4457
