Our Partners Make It Possible
Partnerships with community-based organizations provide the foundation for all archi-treasures projects. Rather than rely on the efforts of a single visionary leaders, whether it’s an artist or a community activist, archi-treasures builds upon the existing grassroots relationships that a partnering organization has accrued.
We rely on our project partners to identify and engage key stakeholders for a project. These stakeholders may be teenagers who need a summer job, senior citizens who need an afternoon activity, community residents that want a role in building a stronger community, architectural firms that have a vision and want to beautify a neighborhood and strengthen underserved communities… they all form a core group that expands as the project evolves, creating more social connections and opportunities for interaction.
Each archi-treasures project has its own source of funding, often directly from the community partner organization. Past project partners have included housing organizations such as Bickerdike Redevelopment and Heartland Housing, Chicago Public Schools, such as Marshall High School and Till Math & Science Academy, health care organizations such as Children’s Memorial Hospital and West Side Health Authority, and community development organizations such as Logan Square Neighborhood Association and Claretian Associates. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring an archi-treasures project, please contact us. archi-treasures projects reach neighborhoods and individuals that are not the recipients of traditional marketing efforts, so be creative…. support an archi-treasures project and make a difference.
