From the L’Arche website: “At L’Arche Portland people with and without intellectual disabilities work together to create home and build community. Those with intellectual disabilities form the heart of our shared life and invite others into mutual relationships. We welcome each person’s unique gifts and challenges, and offer opportunities for personal transformation. We trust in God and live as a sign that love, respect and interdependence are the path to a peaceful and just world.”
