Top Story:

When Jean Vanier visited institutions, before he started L’Arche, he was disturbed not only by the loneliness of people with intellectual disabilities but also by the aimlessness of their lives. They might well sit all day in a barren room with no activities and little interaction with others. Fundamental to the vision of Jean and L’Arche is that people with intellectual disabilities should have meaningful daytime work and opportunities for creativity.
