Lent 4 L'Arche is helping raise money to assist in the general operating of the community.
The money raised will be used to support individuals with intellectual disabilities who are not funded by the state as well as help offset state reductions in funding. L'Arche Mobile is a christian community that shares life with individuals with intellectual disabilities. We have been in Mobile since 1974 and currently shares life with 23 individuals. L'Arche Mobile makes a lifetime commitment to the people that we share life together with. Leonard was 40 years old when he left the state institution where he lived for 38 years. Leonard lived in our community for 34 years as he had opportunities to travel, make decisions about his life and bring joy to many that he came into contact with. He died peacefully after a short illness. Leonard’s story illustrates the commitment that is made to each individual that we share life with.
