The APP was re-formed in 2008 by Hot Springs Area Pagans President Bryan Scott-Kiddy, and other leaders in the pagan community, as a non-profit organization. Its focus is to serve those in need, gather all paths together for mutual respect and growth, and erase discrimination to the pagan community by educating and openly sharing what it means to walk the pagan path.

All are welcome.
