The mission of Athens Resource Center for Hope (ARCH) is to provide co-located community programming to support individuals and families experiencing homelessness and realizing and sustaining independence.

The vision of ARCH is to co-locate necessary services so that members of the community at risk of and experiencing homelessness have realistic access to opportunities to work toward independence.  ARCH consists of multiple organizations constructing a multi-disciplinary approach to eradicating homelessness, including safe housing, mental health services, medical services, affordable quality daycare, employment programming, case management, and basic needs such as food, showers, and laundry.  Our vision is that this multi-faceted approach will address the needs of our more vulnerable community members and lead to a healthier, more vibrant Athens-Clarke County.
