Celebrating the gifts of persons with and without disabilities
Spirituality...Relationships...Servant Leadership...Intentional Community...Celebration
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!
What makes 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.
We are now a 501(c)3 Not for Profit public charity!
Thank you, thank you to all who helped. Your generous support makes a huge difference for persons with disabilities.
Now we can do so much more. We applied to the IRS over a year ago, and we are delighted to finally be a not for profit organization.
Now, you can make donations in our own name, "Friends of L'Arche Central Virginia," and they are tax deductible.
All Are Welcome!
