APA’s mission is to promote healthy children and families by providing family support services to prevent child abuse and domestic violence. APA also advocates for culturally competent services for Asians and Pacific Islanders through education, community building and leadership development. APA is the only hospital-based agency offering in-home family support services specifically for Asian Pacific Islander families and children.
When our founder started Asian Perinatal Advocates, his goal was to provided services for Asian immigrant mothers. Today, our services are made available to families of all ethnicities. Many of our clients and friends in the community continue to remember as APA and we have kept the name to remind us of our humble beginnings in San Francisco General Hospital.
