"About A Place Called Home
To provide at-risk youth with a secure, positive family environment where they can regain hope and belief, earn trust and self-respect and learn skills to lead to a productive lifestyle free of the gangs, drugs and poverty that surround them. We help inner city youth find their dreams through educational enrichment.
In the next 5 years, we would like A Place Called Home to impact the community with:
A decline in violent and gang related activities
An increase in High School graduates
An increase in college entrants and graduates
An increase in gainfully employed community members
Better awareness of health issues in community
A community give-back campaign where community contributes to the success of APCH
All programs "certified" as "model or ideal" for after school programming
Community activists who fight for their rights in housing, jobs and other issues
A community with more technological access, learning ability and success
Thousands more children reaching their academic, creative and social potential through APCH programs
