Agape is a holistic, cutting-edge, innovative, servant
ministry of peace and justice committed “to providing critical Housing and Life
Skills that empower women and their children to transform from Homelessness,
Crisis and Poverty to Self-Sustaining, Fulfilling Lives.” Agape accomplishes
this mission through collaboration, advocacy and service delivery to help our
most vulnerable neighbors in need. These resources move them toward their goal
of a quality, self-sustainable life.
Agape manages an inventory of stable, safe and affordable housing. Housing includes extended stay hotels, apartments and single-family homes. Agape provides transformational housing and services to Woman Head of Household families. These families successfully become independent through facilitating access to stable, safe, affordable and effective housing and childcare. These services allow them to work, support their family, and acquire skills necessary to earn a living wage.
This program provides:
Safe stable housing addressing barriers to being able to pay rent and assist with applying for housing subsidies;
assistance with childcare, including 3rd shift (beyond traditional childcare hours) so participants can engage in Life Skills classes; and
assistance with car repairs, title loans, and addressing tickets surcharge, loaner cars, assistance with purchasing a used reliable car at a discounted cost and 0% interest and teach auto care and maintenance skills.
