APCH provides educational programs, counseling, mentoring, music, dance, art, nutrition, recreation and athletics– we even have organic fruit, vegetable and flower gardens. We have a robust college preparation and scholarship program and have sent more than 400 young people from South Central to college. In 2017 we launched our Professional Readiness & Employment Program to support young people in preparing for and securing meaningful, good-paying jobs. Our charter high school partnership is open throughout the school year and provides academic support and wraparound services for students in the foster care system, on probation, and without stable homes.

The APCH annual budget is $6.5 million. Of that, 36% is from foundations, 28% is from events, 22% is from individuals, and 12% is from corporations. Additionally, we receive and distribute more than $1 million in in-kind goods throughout the year.
