APC is committed to reducing risky behaviors among children and youth, while ensuring that they are ready for school, and positioned to succeed. APC is also committed to increasing the number of stable, self-sufficient families in the Augusta-Richmond County Community.  Leveraging an extensive network of partners from multiple sectors, APC uses a Collective Impact framework to align community systems in support of our mission.

Candice discussed the following programs: Continued Change Initiative (CCI), Family Self-Sufficiency Initiative, Georgia Home Visiting Program, and the Opening Doors Out of School Youth Program. The APC had a current fundraising goal of $137,000 for their 37th birthday.
