Community life in L’Arche for a person with an intellectual disability may be a place to live independently, or in a household with others, as well as a place of work: day programs, a part-time job, crafts, services…or a place of home based activity; at all times it is a place of support and guidance that adapts as well as possible to the needs of each individual; it is also a place of commitment, to share daily life with the support of Assistants and other community members.
L’Arche Boston North homes are places of welcome for all people, we are an inter-denominational faith community where the gifts of intellectually disabled adults (core members) are revealed through mutually transforming relationships. Our daily life is centered around four communal homes and the 17 “core members”, who call L’Arche Boston North their home. These core members have valuable lessons to impart to everyone they meet. Faith, patience, love and joyful spontaneity make them, in L’Arche language, true ‘teachers of the heart’.
