ARCHIVE

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.
