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. Read more about this commitment to residents.
