APAH is an award-winning, community-based nonprofit real estate developer that owns and preserves quality housing for families who earn less than 60% of the average median income, providing 2,320 households across the DC Metro region with quality rental homes and the critical supports that go with them – from courses in ESL (English as a Second Language) to backpacks for the new school year. Safety-net services like food distribution, eviction prevention, and connections to emergency funding are provided alongside programs that build self-sufficiency, including workshops in workforce development, financial education, and civic engagement. Partnerships with other providers mean APAH reaches out to young, single mothers pursuing their education, the formerly homeless with severe mental illness, and women and families exiting shelter programs. Safe, secure, affordable housing and supportive services are the keys to independence. With your help, it can happen.
