Review for APPALACHIAN REGIONAL COALITION ON HOMELESSNESS INC, Bristol, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ARCH has been a godsend to our area of Northeast TN. Before its inception, there was little consistent regional advocacy, and coordination of services for the homeless and others in need. Since coming on the scene, ARCH has been the catalyst behind bringing a diverse group of concerned individuals, community service providers, government agencies,area churches and schools, and others together, on a routine basis, to passionately and creatively address the needs of the homeless and others. To highlight: ARCH has provided leadership with identifying and a variety of complex problems related to homelessness, both at the local and regional level; ARCH personnel and volunteers have written and coordinated the writing of many new successful grant proposals. The funds from these grants have led to the creation of/and expansion of housing programs,and many community services for the homeless and others at risk; and, ARCH routinely coordinates HUD-mandated point-in-time count projects and makes the data collected available for use by member agencies. Our region benefits in so many ways from the efforts of ARCH.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the pleasure of working alongside others who want to end homelessness in our region.
