Agape's mission is to provide critical housing and life skills that empower single women and their children to transform from homelessness, crisis and poverty to self-sustaining, fulfilling lives.
Since opening, less than four years ago, Agape has served 92 un-duplicated souls (37 women & 55 children), provided over 20,000 nights of shelter and just this year has turned away over 500 families. To date we celebrate 20 graduates and their 25 children who now live self-sustaining, rewarding, and safe lives.
