Almost on a weekly basis we get questions asking how a loved one can become a resident in a L'Arche home (we call the adults with developmental disabilities that live in our home Core Members). Please read all the information below and then fill out the Contact Us form if you have additional questions.
First, we understand the search process can be daunting and we are honored by your interest in L'Arche Atlanta.
L'Arche Atlanta currently has one home that is at full occupancy. When we accept a Core Member, it is for life, so there is virtually no turnover. We don't have a first come, first served waiting list, but we will be opening a second home as early as 2021. If you're interested you can fill out the form below and send it to Rita Haggerty at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will keep it on file and reach out to you with information on our process when we have an opening. All of our residents must have a Georgia Medicaid waiver.
When we open the second L'Arche home, we'll look for Core Members that have previously shown interest in our community with their involvement. The best way to show your interest in L'Arche is to attend our Community Events. To find out about upcoming Community Events, please sign up for our newsletter. We also update this link regularly: www.larcheatlanta.org/community-events

We do not have any openings, but we accept applications on an ongoing basis. Before you take the time to apply, please know that all of our Core Members must have a Georgia Medicaid waiver.
