L'Arche Chicago celebrated its 16th Anniversary here in Oak Park this past weekend at Dominican University.  It was a very successful event, raising over $25,000! L'Arche was able to share its mission with both brand-new and long-term supporters. 
L'Arche Chicago extends an invitation to come and see the extraordinary beauty of a community of faith that celebrates the gifts of each person, including those with developmental disabilities.
We are a community where people with and without developmental disabilities share life together in homes, as a family.  We strive to merge quality care and mutual relationships, building a community where everyone has a genuine place of belonging.  Here in the Oak Park River Forest community we have three licensed group homes, providing homes for life for 10 adults with disabilities.
Our Chicago community joins 148 other L'Arche communities in 37 different countries around the world.  We seek to be a sign of hope, revealing the truth that all people, including those with disabilities, have gifts to share.
