Having been a local community leader for many years, I am excited to now support our collective national work, advancing the health, growth, and reach of all L’Arche communities, established and emerging. I appreciate the many challenges and gifts of building inclusive community.


Andrew Callahan

Director of Finance & Administration
View Bio

I’m proud to be a native Oregonian, and have been settled in Portland, Oregon for almost 20 years. I love the outdoors and am an avid fisherman so spend a good deal of time in the surrounding rivers. I also enjoy my favorite sports teams and am passionate about good wine and food.


Sharon Ryan

Director of Member Development
View Bio

I am native to and recently resettled in the Boston area, close to my large and social family. In between, I spent 30 years in other east coast cities – Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC – with a 2-year jaunt to Belfast, NI with L’Arche. I try to keep my mind sharp with crossword puzzles, my hands and creative spirit busy making things out of fiber (spinning, felting, weaving) and my heart open with new voices in poetry and podcasts.


Matt Hackworth

Director of Development & Communications
View Bio

I’m a recovering journalist who loves to shape and share stories about the church’s mission of service that can change the world. As the parent of a son with autism, I am a committed advocate for those of differing abilities, and for creating just and sustainable communities where all are welcome and fulfilled.


Danelle Harris

Finance Coordinator

I have been involved with L’Arche since 2007, and recently moved from Tacoma, WA to Portland, OR to be closer to my daughter. I enjoy painting, reading and game nights with family and friends. And I love to take walks with my dog Gunner who likes to bark at the wind!


Aslinn Arcuri

Knowledge & Learning Coordinator

I live in Portland, OR with my husband, kids, and big extended family. I love to paint, read, be in nature, travel, and laugh with friends. L’Arche’s mission to celebrate the unique value of every person motivates my work.


Rod Greenough

Gift Processor & Database Coordinator
View Bio

I grew up on a farm in central Wisconsin, lived in Utah for most of the 80s and 90s, and came to Oregon with my partner (now husband) twenty years ago. My main preoccupation outside of work is photography of historical or cultural spaces such as the Portland Japanese Garden or the Pendleton Roundup. Research on the origins of Czech immigrants to Wisconsin, as part of an informal group of researchers, also takes up an inordinate amount of my time.


Hope Kruh

Impact Partnerships
View Bio

I started my journey with l’Arche 25 years ago, living in community. Since then, I’ve supported the disability movement through my work with several organizations of people who lean in with conviction and ambition. Today, I’m focused on building partnerships in the U.S. and around the world – change is probable when we create it together.


Eryn Irrera

Stewardship & Development
View Bio

I’m a longtime professional fundraiser, formerly of Chicago, who is passionate about community living and creating a world where all are welcomed and all gifts are celebrated. In my free time, I can be found exploring my new community of small town North Carolina with my spouse and dog, and reading faster than I can return books to the library. 


Kyla Ponciano

Soy latina and very proud of it! My hobbies include writing and reading poetry, hanging out with family and friends, listening to music, dancing and being out in nature. I also enjoy being of service, which includes L’Arche. I am very grateful to be able to be a part of this team, working to make a positive impact on people of all different abilities and the world.


Stasya Erickson

Manager of Community Support & Learning

I’m an immigrant from Russia who grew up in Pennsylvania and settled in Syracuse, NY after college. When I’m not working, I love to hike, draw, take photographs, travel and feast on delicious food. My life is made rich by my two sons and husband.


Lori Moore

Manager of Community Support & Learning
View Bio

Like my Jesuit friends, I try to find God in all things. I come alive wandering with my backpack through new countries, meeting people from all walks of life, and finding delicious street food. I have been a big admirer of L’Arche for over 20 years and have been a long time advocate for social and environmental justice. You can find me most often reading, hiking, or cooking for friends.


Tom Murphy

Manager of Community Support & Learning
View Bio

I have been part of L’Arche since 2002, and am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Theology and Education focusing on the dialogue between the spirituality and practice of L’Arche, disability studies, and considerations for accessible and inclusive religious education. I interweave my L’Arche and academic work with my family life, which includes a very active and curious toddler-aged son who loves exploring the great outdoors with his mom and dad.


Thomas Marquis

Manager of Community Support & Learning
View Bio

Growing up most of my life in Virginia, the Midwest has been my home since 2002. My husband and I recently relocated to outside Minneapolis, after living nearly 20 years in Kansas City, MO. I originally joined L’Arche in 2005 and have held various roles since. I love to travel, host friends and family, and pass time by playing card games—my favorite being Canasta!

As a member of L’Arche since 2016, I have witnessed the stories and creativity of our people at every level, both domestically and internationally. It is a privilege now working to capture those experiences, elevating the voices of people with intellectual disabilities and expanding L’Arche’s impact in society.
