APCH is an amazing non profit! They have a myriad of programs designed to help kids succeed. It's even cooler that they have college flags from all of their alumni around the halls that motivate the kids.
Being apart of their mentor program I have been able to work with a young man who has shown so much growth and taught me so much in the process .
This is the type of non profit that needs to have a base in every major and minor city, I look forward to continuing to work with them. They've even helped motivate my plans to have an event for youth myself.
I started as a teachers aide for the after school/homework program over 5 years ago. Not too long after that I was approached and asked to be a mentor to a younger student who was struggling in his work, in his community, and in his home. It has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, as I now witness my mentee transfer from a 2 year community college program (with great pride!) to his Bachelors program at Cal State San Francisco! So very proud to be a part of his legacy-a legacy built between a unique partnership known as A Place Called Home and the Los Angeles community.
This is one o f the BEST organizations I've participated in. In my lifetime the is one of the things I'm most proud of. My wife suggested I give back and I was told about A PLACE CALLED HOME. I've been mentor for over 3 years and the rewards continue to come.
HI! My name is Kristen I work as a mentor at APCH and I love it! This is my first go at being a mentor and APCH has been the perfect place to explore this role. I have been wanting to get involved in the community more especially with youth. As a musician myself I was struck by the program and the plethora of resources it gave their youth for creative outlets. The staff at APCH are so incredibly nurturing and helpful and always available for questions. The group outings they make avaiable for us mentors and our youth is incredible from sporting events to concerts they really allow their kids to experience the city. The mentoring program gives such a positive and supportive enviornment for youth so they have place other than home and school to find out who they are. My young lady is so incredibly smart, kind and talented and I would not have found her and found such a wonderful bond if it weren't for the mentoring program at APCH.
These guys have been fantastic to work with, I really believe they have the best intentions and all my experiences with them have been genuine and positive. Their team has always been very friendly and the events I have attended with my mentee have been fun and invigorating.
I am currently a mentor at APCH, they truly care about the mentor and mentee relationship. They help facilitate meaningful events where you can connect with your mentee and they are also very responsive to inquiries. I sincerely enjoy spending time with my mentee and the wonderful people who make APCH posisble.
Such a great organization that puts all of its effort in ensuring youth get the adequate resources necessary to excel in life. I am touched by all that the staff does to support their members in every way they can. Great place for youth to grow academically, personally, and professionally!
One of my favorite places!, You do so much for the community! THANK YOU!
It was amazing volunteering and hope everyone else do this as well! Thank you APCH for all you do!
It was my first time here and I really enjoyed my time serving the families. Keep up the good work !
It was great working in a team and helping the organization set things up. I helped combine cutleries and tie them together. It was a wonderful experience. What the organization is doing is really great. I like how you keep things very organized and clean. Thank you for the experience.
Very happy to volunteer here today. It’s a wonderful experience and a truly fantastic event. It really does feel like home here
I came to A Place Called Home to volunteer for their Thanksgiving dinner set up and I am so impressed by the staff and facilities here. I knew the organization did wonderful work in the community but you realize why they are so successful when you come to volunteer in person. I urge everyone to volunteer in person and to donate!
Very powerful full service support provider to the community surrounding it. A model example of when a non profit has immediate and direct impact on the community it serves in an immensely profound way. Volunteering here is a joy. The positive energy of the place exudes from all around you and you are welcomed and appreciated from the moment you arrive.
A close friend of mine invited me to volunteer at a place called home. And it was an awesome place. Friendly people and great facility
Great organization that helps the community. A wonderful place to take time and offer community service. Volunteered for a thanksgiving dinner and would definitely do it again!
