About

Asian Pacific Self-Development And Residential Association (APSARA) was formed in 1989 by a resident group of 35 refugee families who lived in Park Village Apartments (PVA), a deteriorated and unsafe 230-unit apartment complex.  The 35 families (7 to 12 members in each family) were experiencing severe economic hardship and trauma after fleeing the Khmer Rouge regime. After losing four children to gun violence and tired of desolate living conditions, they formed APSARA to organize to build a safe community with affordable housing, a safe place for community and youth, self-determination, and economic opportunity, purchasing PVA from HUD for $1 in 1993.

 

OUR STORY

APSARA is a grassroots membership organization home to the largest concentrated Southeast Asian population in Stockton, and the last remaining affordable housing property collectively owned by Cambodian refugees in the United States. APSARA has been an anchor institution in the Southeast Asian community in Stockton, providing space, organizing infrastructure and leadership for community work ranging from deportation defense to access to healthcare and youth leadership development. APSARA has deep ties in Stockton and the region, and partners with grassroots groups, regional collaboratives, schools, temples and churches, and local government.

OUR MISSION

APSARA's mission is to provide leadership for the residents by collaborating with the larger community to provide a safe, positive environment that promotes economic independence.
