Early in 2018, we were approached by Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Beaverton with an offer to purchase their Ministry House at below market rate. This 10-bedroom, 4-bath/shower, 6-toilet home has 6 accessible bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 common living spaces, and a lovely garden. The space offers flexibility in living arrangements to meet various needs and preferences and presents a blank canvas to help innovate with a new model of L’Arche home, one that separates the goals of community-building from direct care. This new home will help welcome 4-5 residents with intellectual disabilities, as well as those without intellectual disabilities. It also offers tremendous opportunity to build partnerships on the west side of Portland with faith, school, business and civic communities. Read our Case for Support and Watch the Video Tour below!
