While you may have heard the unfortunate news regarding Architecture for Humanity’s San Francisco headquarters closing its doors, Architecture for Humanity New York (AFHny) has reassured its members and supporters that our city’s local chapter is here to stay. AFHny, along with 57 chapters worldwide, has vowed to continue volunteering pro-bono design services, advocacy, and training within communities.
According to an update on AFHny’s website, “We stand as a united front with our 20,000 colleagues around the world, and will work to uphold the original mission of the organization. Your chapter will continue to provide humanitarian design solutions throughout New York City. Our global chapter partners have also made that commitment.”
Architecture for Humanity’s Chapter Network has also issued a collective statement, reaffirming the unwavering commitment of the volunteers who have continued to support their local chapters in advancing the mission towards humanitarian design.
