"My experience with L'Arche last year has been enriching beyond belief. I have developed friends within the community in Haverhill and feel that they have taught me so much. This organization's model, which believes everyone has a purpose and holds importance, is so unique and so heart wrenching. I would suggest to anyone to not only do an immersion program at L'Arche, but also think about applying to work with one of the L'Arche communities located throughout the world."
