APPALACHIAN REGIONAL COALITION ON HOMELESSNESS INC
November 16, 2009
I first became associated with ARCH around 2002 while working for Creative Energy, a local advertising agency who was helping out with promotional materials for ARCH. My knowledge was limited at the time but I have since, in recent years, become much more aware of the wonderful impact they are having, not only in the local community, but throughout the northeast Tennessee region. In 2007, I was appointed to attend monthly ARCH meetings at the request of my supervisor at Tennessee Community Services Agency. Through these meetings,my volunteer work with point-in-time and the 2008 Gala planning, I have witnessed an organization brimming with passionate and concerned leaders who have unified in one accord to bring hope and relief to those suffering from homelessness in our area. I am amazed at how far the organization has come and at how many lives have been impacted since the inception. I hold ARCH, the Board and members in highest regard and look forward to seeing many more individuals and families set free from the grip of homelessness through the mission and efforts of this wonderful organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Monthly meetings and volunteer efforts.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Seeing such wonderful growth and impact thoughout the region and hearing about individuals and families moving from homelessness to housing and even in some cases, owning their own homes.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
The passion and the heart that the members seem to have for the homeless.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Hopefully END homelessness in northeast Tennessee and perhaps even beyond!!!
