Community Initiatives

We live in the community, and the community lives in us.

A Place Called Home welcomes our youth, families and community members to benefit from and support community events and civic engagement opportunities throughout the year. We provide volunteer opportunities at APCH and link our members and families to local resources.

Community events include:

  • Back to School Fest, where we distribute backpacks, clothing, school supplies and shoes for youngsters starting their school year
  • Community Thanksgiving Dinner, where we serve 1,000 dinners and distribute hundreds of bags filled with groceries
  • A Place Called Home for the Holidays, where we provide a daylong celebration and distributes thousands of books, toys, and articles of clothing every holiday season
  • Cinderella and Prince Charming Project, where 1,200 juniors and seniors participate in self-improvement workshops and have volunteer signup opportunities, and then each receives a beautiful dress or suit for prom and graduation season

Each year, APCH gathers and distributes $1 million worth of food, clothing, beds, household items, toys, sports equipment, prom dresses and suits, appliances, and other goods of value and meaning to the families we serve and the whole community.
