Join Our Board

Being on the board of a non-profit can be hard work, but it is also a fun and fulfilling way to volunteer your time. You can take a look at a list of our current board members or give us a call at 662-429-3652 to ask if we have any openings. The Apelah board is an amazing group of individuals, and we wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do without them.


As a 501(c)3 non-profit, Apelah is a tax exempt charitable organization. Donations to our agency go towards supporting our programs and services. Our donor community allows us to give more foster children loving homes and help more elderly people live independently at home as they age. As a part of our vision, we strive to ensure fiscal accountability for the use of all of our funding. We know that a donation is a sign of support for our mission, and we want every donor to feel confident in the work that we do. Check out our events page for any upcoming giving opportunities.
