Antelope Valley Connect Day takes place monthly. We have partners with different organizations to bring crucial services to those experiencing homelessness as well as those at risk of becoming homeless. To help them on their path to wellbeing. AV Connect Day is a one-stop shop where guests can get one-on-one time with representatives from city, county, and state agencies along with nonprofits who specialize in homelessness services. Hygiene kits, clothing, lunch, and much more are available on a first-come, first-served basis.Contact us
With guidance from CalFresh Healthy Living- Healthy Communities Initiative, we sought to improve the types of foods being distributed at local food pantries. Every second and fourth Friday of the month, AVPH hosts a food pantry to distribute free produce to local community. On distribution days, AVPH conducts healthy food demonstrations and provides recipes for some of the items distributed. The healthy food demonstration includes highlighting the health benefits on selected produce and showcasing practical ways to prepare them. Additionally, emergency hot meals are prepared every Friday by their in-house café. Having access to extra produce has allowed AVPH the ability to conduct those activities.Contact us
The CalFresh Healthy Living- Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI) program aims to reduce obesity among SNAP-Ed eligible populations and create healthier environments where people live, learn, work, play, pray, and shop. Through this program, Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH) works with local food pantry partners to establish healthier options during food distribution days.

The smoke-free outdoor areas program aims to change social norms surrounding tobacco use and indirectly influence current and potential future tobacco users by creating a social environment and legal climate in which tobacco becomes less desirable, less acceptable, and less accessible by reducing exposure to secondhand smoke in outdoor areas.Contact us
