Together, we can bring a change to the world.

L’Arche Lethbridge (Alberta, Canada) provides an extraordinary opportunity for men and women from around the world with and without developmental disabilities to share, live, work, and learn together. Sharing life with individuals with developmental disabilities at L’Arche is a counter-cultural life-style choice. It is a choice to share in the incredible gifts of individuals with developmental disabilities. L’Arche is a dynamic example of how people of very different abilities, cultures and religions can learn to live in peace. Together we discover depths of joy, freedom, and love, and the incredible beauty of each person regardless of intellectual capacity.

L’Arche Association of Lethbridge is required to fundraise approximately 20% of its operating budget every year. We are a Registered Charity (Charitable Registration 13716 4968 RR0001).
