WHO WE ARE Since 2005, Advocates for Real Community Housing (ARCH) has transformed the way our community looks at affordable housing. By buying and restoring properties in Blaine County, we are able to welcome into the neighborhood our teachers, police officers, hospital technicians, firefighters, nurses, and others who serve the community. We live in a very special community. ARCH improves the quality of life for hard-working families who, in a more typical community, would not need housing assistance. We ensure that the people who serve this community can afford to live in it.

OUR MISSION Our Mission is to develop safe, permanently affordable housing for persons of low to moderate income and to work with all interested public and private parties towards this objective.

OUR VISION The Vision of Arch is to create a thriving community in Blaine County.

A LETTER What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher? He reminds the other dinner guests that it’s true what they say about teachers: Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach. I decide to bite my tongue instead of his and resist the temptation to remind the dinner guests that it’s also true what they say about lawyers. Because we’re eating, after all, and this is polite conversation. I mean, you’re a teacher, Taylor. Be honest. What do you make? And I wish he hadn’t done that— asked me to be honest— because, you see, I have this policy about honesty and ass-­‐kicking: if you ask for it, then I have to let you have it. You want to know what I make? I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could. I can make a C+ feel like a Congressional Medal of Honor and an A-­‐ feel like a slap in the face. How dare you waste my time with anything less than your very best. I make kids sit through 40 minutes of study hall


HOW WE HELP Community: ARCH helps people who keep our area thriving and moving forward Neighborhood: ARCH transforms vacant lots into beautiful homes, improving property values You: ARCH makes it possible for the people who serve you to afford to live in the community


MEET AN ARCH RECIPIENT ARCH helps real people who contribute greatly to our community. This singlefamily rental home in the mid valley houses Gabrielle and her family, giving her a simpler commute to the hospital for her work as a nurse, and allowing her husband [name?] easy access to his job at the post office. The big backyard with mountain views provides the perfect place for Gabrielle and (husband’s name) to recreate with their son [name?].


FUNDING Private donations from community members like you help us to secure federal housing development funds. On average, every dollar given through memberships acquires $30 from grants, resulting in federal fund allocations of over $12 million. Our existing properties increasingly fund operational expenses every year.

OUR METHOD 1.) Transform donations into grants.

2.) Buy the land. 3.) Build the house. 4.) Help a family.

“A LACK OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING NEGATIVELY AFFECTS EMPLOYERS, SENIORS, LOW-INCOME FAMILIES, SERVICE SECTOR AND PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS SUCH AS TEACHERS, FIREFIGHTERS AND POLICE OFFICERS.”
