How we Build a Community


L’Abri has a spirit that becomes evident to everyone who comes aboard—a spirit of community.
Seasonal activities such as the winter holiday party and the weekend camp in early September are anticipated and enjoyed by residents and volunteers alike. Everyone pitches in. At camp, one might be responsible for maintaining the campfire, others will help cook, wash dishes or sweep the floor; someone might play a guitar. We enjoy being together, and having the chance to be with the residents and volunteers in other apartments.
Building community is an integral part of our purpose. It flows from the long-term nature of relationships, the opportunities to gather, and the caring of individuals for one another.
