Support Services

APM Support service programs provide long-term help to the homeless by providing housing assistance and services that provide the tools necessary for successful independent living. Program participants gain confidence and hope through drug and alcohol counseling, life skills training, language skills development and job experience.

APM has a limited number of housing options available for individuals diagnosed with co-occurring disorders, including substance abuse, mental health, and/or HIV/AIDS. The programs provide individuals comprehensive case management services that tailor action plans to individual needs. In addition, our programs promote resident involvement in the community at large through socialization and recreation opportunities.
