l'arche atlanta

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


L’Arche Atlanta’s 9th Birthday Benefit & Auction
Join L’Arche Atlanta, a faith-based nonprofit that serves adults with developmental disabilities, for its virtual benefit auction, including 60+ items from local business, Sunday, September 19.


Bring dinner to the L’Arche house. The L'Arche house team is in need of some support with dinners! We have some folks who are taking much needed time off for the first time since COVID began, so we are incredibly appreciative of your help. Meals are for 6-7 people and need to have gluten-free and vegetarian options. Please do not include a dessert with the meal, although we are happy to receive fruit in lieu of dessert! Due to COVID precautions, we are not hosting guests for dinner; we are asking for porch drop-offs for meals. Here is the link to sign-up.


Contact Megan Denton to learn more.

New American Pathways

NDUMC has sponsored a refugee family through New American Pathways in the past. 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.
