Two Reasons to Celebrate!
We don't need a reason to celebrate, but this year we have two big reasons.
First, founded in 1964, L'Arche is turning 50 - Our Jubilee Anniversary
Second, We are now a 501(c)3 Not for Profit public charity!
Thanks to all who helped. Your generous support makes a huge difference for persons with disabilities.
Now we can do so much more. You can now make tax deductible donations in our own name, "Friends of L'Arche Central Virginia."
You are invited - All are welcome!Tuesday, August 26, 7 PM - 9 PM

Why is L'Arche special?
For a hint, watch this video from L'Arche en France. Wishing L'Arche a happy 50th birthday as we work (and play) to bring L'Arche to the Richmond area.
Founded by a dedicated group of parents of children with disabilities, Friends of L'Arche Central VA (FoLCVA) grew from a dream for our children to live together in family-like homes as a sign of hope and inspiration in our community.
We are incorporated as a legal nonprofit organization by the Virginia State Corporation and we are a 501(c)3 not for profit public charity.
Our "Community Life Group" (CLG) is our main group. The CLG builds our community of friends through celebrations, events, prayer, and relationship-building activities.
Our Board of Directors is in a strategic planning process to ensure that we will be well prepared to accomplish our mission.
We invite you to join us in prayer and celebration as we move toward our dream of providing family-like homes for persons with intellectual disabilities!
