Working together, we can ensure all Arlingtonians have the resources they need to thrive.
Founded in 1989 by four local families who wanted to help meet the needs of low-wage earners within their community, APAH now serves more than 3,000 individuals and families who live in our 15 properties.
But housing is just one component of a family’s journey to stability. That’s why APAH has built collaborative partnerships with community nonprofits and Arlington County’s human services in order to help address the spectrum of issues that APAH residents may face. We also actively Arlington County’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness by providing permanent supportive housing to our most vulnerable neighbors.
In 2016, APAH was chosen as one of the 40 recipients of the Citi Foundation’s Community Progress Makers Fund. Thanks to the grant, we took major steps forward in building opportunity for Arlington residents by mobilizing a brain trust of community leaders to address issues of equity and inclusion.
