Building Dynamic Neighborhoods

APM focuses on improving quality of life issues in the communities we serve by creating dynamic social, economic, and environmental changes. We work together with the community in building a dynamic neighborhood.

The Food Buying Club offers the highest quality fruits and vegetables for the lowest price with NO membership fees. You can buy what you want when you want with several pick-up locations throughout our community. On average, $25 could buy you 35 lbs. of food leaving more money in your pocket to use toward other bills and needs.
If you have questions or would like to join the Food Buying Club, contact: (267) 296-7350, or visit our office at 1900 N. 9th Street.
Since 1989, APM has physically transformed North Philadelphia by addressing the community’s needs for healthy food and financial services. We have developed everything from low-income housing to market rate rentals. More recently, APM developed Paseo Verde, the first triple-LEED Platinum building in the United States.
For more information contact (267) 296-7305, or visit our office at 600 W. Diamond Street.
