Imagine Community Differently

Transforming Lives

L'Arche is a way of life, but it's also a model of care that is unique. In our community...

People with intellectual disabilities are at the heart of L'Arche. They're not clients, patients, or recipients of services, but rather they are friends, teachers, and companions.

People with intellectual disabilities grow through their encounters in L'Arche. Through daily acts of care, trust, and friendship, they develop into ambassadors of compassion and leaders for social change and the common good.

A divided society is mended through inclusivity; where people with many differences–social-economic status, race, religion, and intellectual capacity–live and work together.

Help with an order from this fundraiser!

L'Arche Clinton has teamed up again with Usborne Books and More with another fundraiser. Usborne is offering assorted card boxes, each containing 30 or more cards. You can check out the options available and order on line by using this link: https://form.jotform.com/kkrogmanubam/-LARCHE-NOV21

Orders will be taken from November 1-19, 2021, with cards delivered by the end of November. You can choose to pick them up at the L'Arche Clinton Office, 715 S 3rd St., Clinton or for $10 more you can have them delivered directly to your home, anywhere in the United States. Just think, you get beautiful cards and L'Arche benefits.

Thank you for your interest in helping with this fundraiser! At $30 per box, these beautiful, detailed cards are an incredible value at only $1 each (30 or more cards in each box, for $30). They easily compare with the $5 cards you find in gift shops and grocery stores. Each box of cards purchased gives nearly $12 to L'Arche.
