Board of Directors

Here is an interview with our very own Sister Pat… an APCH heroine.

Our Board of Directors is a group of highly committed business people and philanthropists working together to make a real difference in the lives of thousands of young people and in the greater community. Working closely with our Executive Director, they provide vision, guidance and resources to keep APCH healthy and growing and to support our mission and vision for a better future for the young people and families of South Central L.A.. Each year, the Board hosts our signature fundraisers, the Gala for the Children; and our GirlPower Awards Luncheon.
