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.
