Dear Fellow AFHers,
We regret the recent news that Architecture for Humanity Headquarters has closed. This came as a shock to all of us in the 55 chapters around the world. Over the last couple of days, AFH:SF has been communicating with our fellow international chapter leaders to strategize the best way to move forward. Amid the turmoil, one thing stands out...we are not going anywhere. There are too many talented minds and caring individuals to give up on what we have started.
Friends, Clients, & Design Humanitarians,
We want to thank you for your trust and constant support over the last 11+ years. It has been an incredible journey and we are proud to say that with you by our side, we have completed over 60 projects in New York City!
To Architecture for Humanity – Minneapolis / St Paul:
Dear Clients, Members, Volunteers and Allies,
We would like to let you know that the Architecture for Humanity Headquarters in San Francisco has announced that they have suspended all operations and are filing for bankruptcy. The press release is available at the main Architecture for Humanity website:
The "Healthy Hartford Hub" project was an ongoing collaboration of the New Haven Chapter of Architecture for Humanity and the Hartford Community Loan Fund (HCLF). In response to a 2012 report by The Reinvestment Fund and the Opportunity Finance Network that identified Hartford as a city with extremely limited supermarket access, the HCLF identified a downtown parcel of unused city-owned land as the ideal location for a new community center.
By now, you've probably heard the news: Architecture for Humanity has closed its doors permanently.
We at AfH DC were shocked and dismayed to hear this. The entire Chapter Network, which includes some 60 Chapters worldwide, is in discussion to determine what our next steps will be. What's clear so far is that this closure does NOT mean the end of the Chapters, including AfH DC.
Come join us upstairs at Rudyard's on Tuesday January 27th. We'll be discussing ongoing and upcoming projects and events. Come learn how to get involved and have an impact on our community!
Architecture for Humanity Houston is looking towards the future, and we want you to come be a part of it!
Time | 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Location | Rudyards British Pub, 2010 Waugh, Houston, TX 77006

Dear Toronto, Architecture Community, Design Humanitarians & Friends -
My apologies if you have already received this message. I just want to make sure we reach everyone.
The news is unfortunately true. Architecture for Humanity, Inc. has closed it's doors after 15+ years. And though this is a sad moment for all of us, we would like to shed some light on this situation and reassure our members.
Architecture for Humanity, is a 501c3 parent organization of all chapters worldwide, started by Cameron Sinclair's vision to "design like you give a damn".
Well there is some big news. AFH has gone bankrupt. Please attend this meeting if you would like to carry on volunteering in New Orleans. We have some ideas and we plan to continue moving forward.
We had a good discussion of goals for next year and recap of 2014 at our last meeting. We will continue to discuss our plans for 2015 and will be forming groups for some projects, so this is a very important meeting to attend if you are interested in getting involved or coming back.
