Live /liv/


1. remain alive.
2. make one’s home in a particular place or with a particular person.

When residents move into an apartment at one of APAH’s properties, the key that they are handed comes with more than just four walls and a roof. That key symbolizes the beginning of a new era in their life.

APAH resident services programming helps those who live at our properties grow their skills, knowledge, and capacity so their futures can be stable.
