LARC owns and operates LARC’s Acadian Village. All revenue generated from tourism, venue rentals, and fundraising events at LARC’s Acadian Village benefit LARC programs.

LARC’s mission is to support persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities in reaching their goals of self-sufficiency, quality of life and self-worth.

For more than 50 years, LARC has been dedicated to serving the needs of people in our community with developmental disabilities and their families. Throughout LARC’s existence, the organization has continually expanded to fully include the people we serve in the mainstream and workforce of the community.
