I have attended fund raising events for L'Arche and witnessed the positive interaction between staff and clients/core members of this community of caring individuals. It is clear the members feel valued, included and are provided with a culture of caring which allows them to self-actualize and to be fulfilled spiritually.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest that they engage professional property management, so they can focus on client service while ensuring top notch real estate maintenance.

As an Assistant who works with the adults and lives with them daily, I find such a rewarding experience everyday as I grow and share life with them. I believe so many volunteers or people from the community can help by using their special gifts with the adults as well as enjoying a laugh, smile or experience that will bring a smile and joy to their day. I enjoy going to the disco with them each month, or as we dig into ice cream sundaes at Friendly's or even just standing and watching the Christmas Parade you get to see such wonderful smiles and enjoyment to their lives, I want so much more for them to do things in the community.

L'Arche Irenicon is a great non-profit organization that supports people with developmental disabilities. These homes provide a family like atmosphere allowing both those who have an intellectual disability (core members) and those who do not (assistants), to create a home, to develop their gifts, to build friendships or just simply enjoy life. L’Arche communities are also places of welcome, of prayer and of support for families and friends, volunteers and neighbors. L’Arche is nondenominational welcoming people of all faiths and cultures.

L’Arche Irenicon “Homes of Hope” Haverhill/Bradford community owns four homes providing homes for sixteen (16) adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities ages 22 and over. L'Arche is always welcoming new people into their community to volunteer or come and share their artistic talent with our members.
