Board of Directors

Oversight of all agency programs and activities are overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors who meet regularly to lead the functions of the organization through a variety of committees.

The Board’s composition includes expertise in business administration, housing development, shelter management, program setup/administration, and fiscal oversight.

An Advisory Board, made up of community residents and individuals from the target population, brings a broad range of expertise and perspectives. This mix allows AAPCI to coalesce the range of knowledge and perspectives needed to initiate its mission and implement its activities.
