Paid Year of Service-working with people with and without developmental disabilities in an intentional community setting.
Housing Options Available
L’Arche Syracuse is a part of an international network of communities who offer a “place” where those with disabilities, called Core Members, and those who share life with them, called Assistants, live together in a faith-based community. Assistants provide direct support and friendship to core members. Syracuse maintains four residences with 4 core members in each home. We are funded like a group home but live as a community of people who support one another in genuine relationships.
We now have both live-in and live-out Assistant positions open (full or part time). Live out persons maintain their own housing.
- We welcome people from all or no faith backgrounds.
- Live-in Assistants are not “on” 24 hours-they are responsible for a normal 40 hour work week and share some asleep overnight responsibilities (respond in an emergency) with the live-in Assistants
Experience with people with disabilities is not a requirement. For L’Arche, all you need are an open heart, willingness to learn, commitment to personal growth, and belief in the unique sacredness and value of every person. While we are looking for people who want more than just a job, we do offer competitive compensation and outstanding health insurance benefits. Come help us change the world one heart at a time.
