APPALACHIAN REGIONAL COALITION ON HOMELESSNESS INC
December 18, 2009

In my experience ARCH has taken from federal funds to expand an organization that was originally intended to help other agencies in NE Tenn. They accepted $500K in funds to help people but they only will accept 3 or 4 people a week in Johnson City and are currently closed due to "lack of funds." They are known to have close ties to Kingsport Housing with Board members being from Kingsport Housing which appears to be a conflict of interest since most of their services seem to go to Kingsport Housing.
