APAH (Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing)
Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing builds and owns rental housing that is affordable to Arlington's low wage earners. St. Michael's has supported APAH's Resident Services in many ways, including food distribution, event volunteering, and support of school age children (for example, providing new backpacks filled with school supplies).
For the holidays, we are collecting Target and grocery store gift cards ($25-$35) to support APAH residents. Deposit donations in the APAH box in the Guild Hall by December 20.
APAH has 5 locations this year for their After School Learning Program (Arlington Mill, Columbia Hills, Gilliam Place, Queen's Court, and The Springs). Sign up to be a tutor at Sign-up: To be a Tutor
More details on APAH and opportunities to volunteer are at apah.org.
After our Sunday service and coffee on July 16th, 14 people left from St. Michael's to tour the APAH headquarters and housing facility on Carlin Springs Road. The tour and presentation highlighted numerous volunteer opportunities to support APAH clients in our community - including food distribution, school supply coordination, student and elderly mentoring, and community events. Afterwards most of us popped over to the Silver Diner where we discussed the many exciting ways to be a part of the APAH mission.
