APA strengthens families with a spectrum of services to prevent and treat problems that may occur as a result of stress, barriers and challenges of language, finances, and lack of resources. APA’s focus is prevention and case management services for families facing the challenge of being new immigrants and/or survivors of domestic violence and child abuse. We provide culturally competent services through education, community building, and leadership development.
