Arche Tirol

Arche Tirol is part of an international community of people with and without disabilities, who live and work together based on the international Charter of the Arche Community. This Charter states
that every human being has a unique value. We have contacts with many Arche communities abroad (primarily Germany).
Arche Tirol was founded in 1992 and is a Christian–ecumenical community. In our daily routine, there is place for spirituality. The work in Arche considers the UN convention for people with
disabilities.
Currently, 10 people with a disability are accompanied in two houses, one in Steinach am Brenner and one in St. Jodok (few kilometres distance). Arche takes in people with disabilities at the age of 18. Currently, four people with mental und multiple disabilities live in the Arche House in Steinach and six live in St. Jodok. Our main philosophy is not only to provide care, but also to offer a community, personal relationships and a home.
