Ways to Volunteer with L'Arche:


Build community with us. Our community events and Connexions groups extend our mission beyond our home to the many families in Atlanta that include adults with disabilities. Want to help create a place of welcome for these families? We always need help with set-up, hosting, and clean-up at our events.


Offer a specialized skill. Over the years, we’ve found that specialized skills can be key to helping others belong. From serving on a Board of directors to capturing photographs to making electrical repairs, we invite you to inquire about how your skill could advance our mission.


Join us for a meal. Love cooking? We invite you to share a home-cooked dinner with our house. We deeply appreciate our monthly cooks — and the joy of welcoming them to our table.


Garden with us. Have a passion for plants? Us too! We recently acquired four garden beds, and would love to work alongside you to maintain them.


Contact Megan Denton, Director of Development & Communications, to learn more. 

Decatur Cooperative Ministry

New American Pathways

NDUMC has sponsored a refugee family through New American Pathways in the past, and we raised thousands of dollars for them this fall. They sent the following message about the current situation with Afghan refugees:

"We are grateful for the outpouring of support and to those asking to get involved as we prepare to welcome Afghan SIVs and refugee families to Georgia. Our immediate needs include household items from our Amazon Wishlist, gift cards for clothing and other needs from Target, Walmart, and Macy's, as well as financial contributions to help resettle new arrivals. Items can be sent to the New American Pathways office ATTN: Advancement Team.
