Adult and Family Services

The case management team coordinates services for APC households to support their housing stability. Case managers help their clients to assess their strengths and to determine areas of opportunity.  The case manager then coordinates the delivery of services to empower each client to be able to meet his or her goals.

In addition to case management, residents have access a wide variety of on-site support services.  Current services offerings include: family, child and individual therapy, drug and alcohol services, healthcare clinics, and housing  and job search search assistance.

Children and Youth Services
Visit from Oakland ZooAPC is home to more than 300 children and youth, accounting for more than two thirds of the community.  Our focus is education and our primary goal is to support each child to achieve academic success while developing the life skills that they will need for future success.

Children and Youth Services has three main services areas to support the development of the youngest members of the APC community:

  • Academic Center – An after school hub of activity where school-aged children get support with homework, get one-on-one tutoring and participate in special enrichment activities.
  • Teen Center – The Teen Center was completed in Fall 2012 thanks to dedicated volunteers from the Alameda Realtor’s Association.  With guidance from APC staff, teens will work collaboratively to determine how the space will be used.
  • Summer and Holiday Program – Children and Youth staff provide a full schedule of summer and holiday actives for APC youth.  In addition to providing an important enrichment opportunities, actives are designed to help students maintain academic grade levels while building social and leadership skills.

APC’s Children & Youth Services benefits greatly from the skill and dedication of its many volunteers who generously spend hundreds of hours in our programs each year.  Please visit our volunteer page to learn how you can get involved.
