Our community is sustained in so many ways by those who cannot live in our homes, but want to lend a hand. Each year we rely on private donations to fund a full 40% of our operating budget. We also depend on the time and energy donated by our many volunteers. We are so grateful for the many people who feel motivated to participate in the mission and impact of our community. If you are someone who feels this motivation, there are many ways to help L’Arche Portland shine as a sign of hope to the world.
- Become a volunteer - time and again, our generous volunteers share with us that they wanted to "help", but found instead that their volunteer experience helped them learn about mutual relationships, hope, forgiveness, and joy.
- Invite us to share our story with your church, your school, or other communities to which you belong.
- Support us by purchasing an item on our wish list and donating it to the community.
- Make a financial contribution, either one time or by becoming a monthly donor.
We are thankful for the countless ways that our supporters join us on the journey of L'Arche Portland!
