Architecture for Humanity works primarily in the reconstruction phase of post disaster situations and will be focused on both transitional and permanent housing and community structures. AfH has partnered with Yele Haiti, AIDG and other local groups by supplying them with pro bono construction and design professionals, setting up community housing resource centers and support in the design and building of earthquake resistant structures. These include the Youth Sports and Disaster Recovery Center in Port-au-Prince, which was planned in 2009 and is ready to begin construction.

When & Where
Architecture for Humanity Dallas/Fort Worth
Architecture for Humanity is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 to promote architectural and design solutions to global, social and humanitarian crises. It creates opportunities for architects and designers from around the world to help communities in need. We believe innovative, sustainable and collaborative design can make a difference.
Around the world, designers are coming together to volunteer their time and their talents and solve issues in their own communities. Local chapters of Architecture for Humanity take many forms depending on the size of the chapter and its location. Each chapter operates autonomously and is engaged in its own projects and activities.
Architecture for Humanity Dallas/Fort Worth is the North Texas chapter of Architecture for Humanity. We are an all-volunteer group of design professionals promoting socially responsible volunteerism through design advocacy, public education, and community action. Currently, we are partnering with Haitian Street Kids, International, to design an orphanage for the abused Restavek population of children.
