l'arche atlanta

Here are a few ways to get connected to L'Arche:

Bring dinner to the L’Arche house. This is extremely helpful as our assistants and Core Members are taking a high level of precaution so that our Core Members do not contract the COVID-19 virus. They aren’t leaving the house except for very rare exceptions. This means non-stop together time, and so a dinner delivery is really appreciated! Contact me to sign up for a day!

Deliver care packages. For our extended community of people with disabilities (about 60-70 families), we are planning to deliver Thanksgiving-themed care packages on November 7. We welcome volunteers to assemble and/or deliver these packages across the metro area.

Zoom Trivia. In addition, our community of people with and without disabilities gathers every Tuesday at 2pm on Zoom to play an hour of multiple-choice trivia. All are welcome! You can sign up here to get an email with the Zoom link:
