Austin Peoples Action Center (APAC)


Austin Peoples Action Center (APAC) is a social service agency serving the “Chicago’s  Austin Community“ and several suburban communities. When the agency began in 1980, there were concerns that the racially changing community of Austin was not adequately serving its most needy residents.
