Our new home in Beaverton will be part of our L'Arche Portland community just as our Montavilla homes have been for 30 years. One big difference will be that folks with intellectual disabilities who live in our Westside home will not receive their paid supports from L'Arche-employed Live-in Assistants but rather through outside contracted caregivers.
And house members without intellectual disabilities will not provide paid care to their housemates with disabilities. That being said, housemates will support each other just as friends or family would.
We will be accepting applications through July 2019 and into August, and will start interviewing applicants in August. Learn more and request an application here.
