APFR has 99 studio units for families with children, generally accommodating a pregnant mother or family consisting of one parent and one child. On-site services include nursery/childcare, early childhood education, afterschool & recreation programs, social services, including housing assistance, and access to on-site substance use treatment through Camelot.

Allie’s Place Afterschool & Recreation

The children and youth, ages five to 16, who attend the APFR afterschool and recreation program chose the Allie’s Gator as their program mascot. Monday through Friday, from 3 to 6 pm, the afterschool and rec team provides an environment that creates a sense of belonging, builds academic confidence, and helps foster new interests and friendships. Their objective is to provide a fun, safe, and enriching environment.
