APSARA is an educational, problem-solving organization that provides leadership for Park Village residents by collaborating with the larger community to provide a safe, positive environment that promotes economic development and small business.
Since 1989, APSARA has served more than 1000 Park Village low-income residents by providing affordable housing and decent programs that fit their social and economical needs. And now it is very exciting that APSARA’s Board is willing to expand services into neighborhood communities such as: Manchester, Kentfield & Bianchi, and Carrington Circle apartment complexes. With the strong partnership with the Public Health (Stockton), Lao Family, Community Partnership for Family, People and Congregation Together, schools, Police Department (Stockton), and other agencies, APSARA has served more than one thousand Cambodian and Hmong families living in the aforementioned communities.
To see the families get stronger and happier, and children living in a harmonious and safe community is our treasure. Even though we cannot solve all the community problems, at least we are responsible to engage residents getting involved in community events or actions so that they can access to information and know where to get help.
I am really proud of the work the APSARA’s Social Service program has done in the thirteen years that I have been Executive Director. This successful community program should credit to APSARA’s staff members and the supportive staffs from our partnership agencies. They have strong commitment in helping to expand services into many communities and signficantly increase visibilities of the programs that allow us to serve many under-served families.
We hope that our supporter, currently and in the past, will generously continue their support in our common goals to build strong families and safe community.
