Partnerships with community-based organizations provide the foundation for all archi-treasures projects. Rather than rely on the efforts of a single visionary leader, whether it’s an artist or a community activist, archi-treasures builds upon the existing relationships.
Stakeholders for our projects may be teenagers who need a summer job or senior citizens who need an afternoon activity. They form a core group that expands as the project evolves, creating more social connections and opportunities for interaction.
Where We Operate
