Become a Monthly Sustainer! Support Erin and Marilyn (pictured to the left) and other people with intellectual disabilities to live in community, grow in belonging, and share their gifts of welcome, openness, and authenticity widely.
L'Arche Portland relies on gifts from people like you to fund over 40% of our operating budget. A growing segment of donors now choose to support us through our Monthly Sustainers' Circle.
With your recurring monthly gift, you help us build and nurture a community of mutual relationship and belonging for people with and without intellectual disabilities. Supporting L'Arche Portland in this way helps people with intellectual disabilities live full lives, share their gifts, and be welcomed as they are. It helps assistants get the skill-set training and emotional support they need to provide outstanding care and learn to accept their own vulnerabilities and gifts. It helps everyone in our community to live out our mission by giving and receiving freely and being present and accountable to each other.
