The African American Planning Commission (AAPC) Inc., is a New York City-based 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization committed to reducing homelessness and addressing the related issues of domestic violence, HIV/AIDS, mental illness, substance abuse, shortage of affordable housing, and unemployment in the communities in which we live and serve.
To be a multi-service housing, social service, community and economic development organization.
AAPC’s strategy is to develop both transitional and affordable permanent housing that integrates comprehensive social support and services within a supportive community to ensure that individuals and families remain stable, are safely housed, stay independent and maintain their status.
AAPC develops partnerships and linkages with local community-based agencies, private developers, and nationally recognized nonprofit organizations. AAPC utilizes government programs, grants, bequests, private funds, tax-credits, contributions from private sector funders and donations from the general public to accomplish its mission.
Breaking The Cycle
AAPC’s programs strive to break the cycle of domestic violence, HIV/AIDS transmission, homelessness, poverty and economic dependency by addressing root causes in a way that respects and keeps intact, the dignity of those served.
AAPC’s programs target the most needy: survivors of domestic abuse, persons and families living with HIV/AIDS, the general homeless population, the elderly, job seekers, disadvantaged children, the poor, and communities-at-large.
