Meet Our Residents

APAH has helped many thousands of families, individuals, young professionals, senior citizens and persons with disabilities find safe, affordable housing at our 17 properties. Most residents work; some are on fixed incomes. All residents are responsible for paying monthly rent. Household income for an APAH resident is typically between $8,700–$57,500.
