This November, many ripples will make a wave for change.
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.
At L’Arche, people with intellectual disabilities become ambassadors for a different way of imagining community.
Like a rock tossed into a lake creating larger and larger circles of ripples, your gift to L’Arche Atlanta makes ripples through our house, neighborhood, and community, eventually causing a wave of change that transforms society.
Support L'Arche Atlanta in GA Gives! GA Gives begins November 1 and culminates on Giving Tuesday, November 27th. When you support L’Arche Atlanta, you not only support our house residents but also challenge our wider society to see people with disabilities differently and seek more authentic--more human--relationships with everyone, beginning with the most vulnerable. Learn more about how we’re doing that here.
Our goal this year is to expand our community of donors. GA Gives is offering a $5,000 prize to the nonprofit with the most unique donors between November 1-27. A gift of $25 or more counts towards the goal!
A $25 donation might not seem like much, but like a stone tossed into a lake creating larger and larger circles of ripples, it will ripple outward as a powerful testament to what is possible when vulnerable people are removed from the peripheries and placed at the center of our communities.
Spread the Word! L’Arche Atlanta invites you to cast your stone and invite a friend to do the same. Help us build a place where people of differing abilities can live, work, and grow together. You’ll be amazed at how far the ripples flow when you commit to placing adults with disabilities--their dignity, their dreams, and their sense of belonging--at the center of the circle.
