In 2012, a group of friends involved in Richmond’s Occupy and activist movements formed ARCH cooperative housing with the goal of providing high quality, low rent housing for low-income, marginalized members of the community, including those of color and varying sexual orientation. Resident members invest a few hours a week volunteering in Richmond’s Northside neighborhood. At eight members, ARCH has ambitious plans to expand to 24 by the end of 2014.
