ARCHI began when a small group joined forces to realign Atlanta’s significant health investments to yield better results. The shared concern was that in a major metro area with world class health resources–why were some residents experience declining health outcomes while employers assume ever increasing health costs?


ARCHI founders knew that it would take much more than healthcare to improve health outcomes–communities, schools, families must be supported to create overall well-being. Organized as a collective impact collaborative ARCHI has been working since 2011 to develop and refine its 28-year strategy, implement community-led change in neighborhoods where health statistics are the worst and address the systemic challenges that create health disparities.
