L’Arche is an international federation. In every community of l’ Arche, people with and without learning disabilities live and work together.
The small houses are based on a family like-atmosphere, where the adult disabled persons, professionals and volunteers from all backgrounds, are working and living together.
Most of the disabled persons go to the day center, where activities like craft-work, occupational therapies or services to the larger society, are offered.
L’Arche wishes to build up bridges between all kind of differences; persons with learning disabilities help us sometimes to understand that vulnerability is a mean to unify.

• Work with the disabled people rather than work for them.
