Fewer than half of U.S. kids today live in a ‘traditional’ family. Rapid changes in American family structure have changed the image of our children. One of the largest shifts in family structure is this: 34% of children today are living with an unmarried parent—up from just 9% in 1960, and 19% in 1980.

Families are important. They nurture us. They teach us. They protect us. They serve as our primary caregivers. When families are strong, communities thrive.

With our friendly and well experienced staff PAP has committed itself to a sustainable, long term vision of creating and cultivating a community of loving, caring, and capable families. Because of the hard work of our staff and volunteers, we’ve partnered and works collaboratively with Shelters, Homeless Housing, Churches and School to help offered our communities families the tools to become better mothers, fathers and children.
