Who We Are
Serving Mississippi since 1996, Apelah is a non-profit provider of specialized foster care and in-home care services. We work with families, the elderly, veterans, and people affected by HIV/AIDS to meet their needs and improve the quality of their lives. Through these services, we strive to achieve our mission of improving well-being and promoting independence throughout all of life’s stages with quality and compassion.
When she was younger, Markitta was placed in foster care with an Apelah family. With the support of her foster family and case managers, she went on to graduate high school and study social work at Jackson State University. Watch the video to hear her full story or read our blog post.
