At L'Arche Portland, people with and without intellectual disabilities are transformed by working together to create home, share life, and build community. Those with intellectual disabilities form the heart of our community and invite others into relationships of mutuality. We give and receive compassionate care and friendship as a community that fosters a deeper experience of being human. We welcome people of all backgrounds in their journeys of faith to find connection and belonging.
