Mission Statement

ARCHIVE works at the intersection of health and housing. We use one basic need - housing - to deliver one basic right - health.

Our mission is twofold: Preventative

We renovate inadequate housing for those who are economically disadvantaged, using simple measures to reduce their vulnerability to poor health.

Treatment-based

For those already suffering from poor health, we create home-based care facilities in order to make housing central to the deliverance of suitable care.

ARCHIVE's model relies on listening to and understanding the needs of community and resident, on the ability to identify the most urgent health challenges and on the delivery of a targeted infrastructure response that best suits the recipient's needs.

Description

ARCHIVE (Architecture for Health In Vulnerable Environments) is an international non-profit organization prioritizing the use of housing as a central strategy for preventing illness and providing care among the poor. Our foremost goal is to improve health outcomes by delivering targeted housing design improvements.
