Assistant/Care Giver – L’Arche Greater Washington, DC

Assistant/Care Giver – L’Arche Greater Washington, DC
L’Arche Greater Washington, DC, is an interdenominational Christian community that was founded in 1983 with a mission of providing loving, life-long homes for people with intellectual disabilities. We seek to provide exceptional levels of direct care to the individuals with disabilities and to educate society about the value of all people, especially those with intellectual disabilities. L’Arche GWDC is one community in a federation of over 130 L’Arche communities over 25 countries worldwide.

''Our mission is to…
Make known the gifts of people with intellectual disabilities,
revealed through mutually transforming relationships.
Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members, while being faithful to the core values of our founding story.
Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society.''

L’Arche Greater Washington, D.C. centers around four communal homes and 16 adults who have intellectual disabilities who are members of an intentional, inter-denominational Christian community (the “core people” of the community). Assistants provide skilled direct care supports to core people, ensure their safety and well-being, and support their integrated participation in all aspects of daily life. Assistants will learn how to serve and how to relate to others in this unique and vibrant environment.
