In the space of an hour you’ll hear how it all began and how the lives of core people and their families, assistants, and board members have been impacted by being part of this unique community.

 

Home tours are available for groups of five or more. Guests have the opportunity to see what life is like in L’Arche in either Adams Morgan or Arlington. Contact us to schedule a home tour, or invite us to give a 15-60 minute presentation at your church, school, office, or place of worship.

 

Want to see the presentation yourself before hosting one? Check our upcoming events for tour dates.

 

What people are saying after the Heart of L’Arche presentation:

“Seeing how young and dedicated these volunteers are makes me reconsider what I want to do with my life after college. Their presentation has influenced me in such a great way that I am considering volunteering a couple years after college to work with them.”  -A.J. Academia

 

“Jesus tells us in Matthew 22:37-40 that the greatest commandment we can follow is to love God and then our neighbor. I do not think that I have met any group of people living this rule of Jesus more fully than those at L’Arche.”  -Matt Green

 

“One of the many questions that I am asked constantly as a elementary education major is what kinds of students I want to work with; young or old, gifted or special needs. I had considered it but hadn’t really decided until the presentation. Now I am certain that I would love to work with students with special needs and possibly go to graduate school to get a degree in Special Education.”  -Coleen Boyd

 

The L’Arche presentation impacted me so greatly, that I have decided to take my gift of artistic ability and see how I can share it with others. I have begun to research Art Therapy degrees, in hopes to work with persons with intellectual disabilities and give them a creative outlet in which they can express their thoughts and feelings. And as much as I would love to work with people such as Bruce (a member of L’Arche) and share my gifts, what I would most look forward to is seeing what they can teach me and change my life. -Caroline Egan
