WHO WE ARE
Archwood Exchange was concieved in 2016 and put in motion in 2017 by 4 concerned community members that wanted to make a difference. The mission was to fill the void of consistent and genuine support for local small black owned businesses to reach immediete goals of financial independence and a long term mark of generational wealth.
As of 2023 Archwood Exchange has hosted over 100 events, helped launch dozens of new businesses, supported 200 plus small businesses, created over 20 local jobs and influenced how we spend our dollars to ensure we support those that support us.
Our nonprofit ACRES (Archwood Community Resource Empowerment Strategy) was established to help us help the community at a larger scale.
We thank everyon for your support and look forward to furthering the mission!
