Humanities Foundation targets its hometown Charleston as an essential location to address the need for more affordable housing after recently expanding their portfolio in Virginia to include an additional 440 new affordable apartment homes. The Foundation plans to acquire the historic Henry P. Archer School in the Eastside Village in June, thereafter converting it into 88 senior affordable apartment homes for those 55 and older. “It is a challenging, intense and creative project. Our Team has worked hard addressing its complexity and we have made many new community partners along the way. Not only is it our mission to address the need for affordable housing, but also, bring folks together. As a whole, the project has become a grassroots movement and catalyst for the Eastside Neighborhood and the shared support has been monumental,” Tracy Doran, President.
