WHAT IS AGAPE?
AGAPE RESOURCE & ASSISTANCE CENTER, INC. is a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt Texas non-profit committed to provide for urgent or unmet SHELTER & SERVICE needs of single women, their children & dependents & youth in crisis or poverty.
Agape is – SHELTER & SERVICE
Agape is – RESPITE & RESPECT
Agape is – HOLISTIC & HOPE
AGAPE SERVES in 4 primary ways:
- Promotes a collaborative cooperative to identify and provide available housing and poverty prevention resources to our most vulnerable neighbors: single moms and single women, children and youth.
- Assembles and manages an inventory of stable and safe short term emergency and mid to long term affordable housing by utilizing existing resources including extended stay hotels, apartments and single family homes.
- Connects Agape Neighbors with accountability based transformation programs which provide mentoring, resources, support, education, life skills and accountability needed for Agape Neighbors to achieve self-sustainability.
- Overcomes the long term devastating impact of poverty and homelessness by focusing on improving the current and future lives of our children and youth. Before the influence of growing up in poverty stalls development and stifles dreams, Agape nurtures children and youth with stable shelter, food, education, mentoring … and hope.
THE PROBLEM of poverty and homelessness in Plano and Collin County is 2 large and the responsibility 2 broad 4 our community to ignore.
THE PROBLEM of poverty and homelessness is far more than 1 city, 1 agency, 1 philanthropy or 1 faith group can solve alone.
THE SOLUTION 4 our community lies in our commitment to collaborate & to work as a village – an AGAPE VILLAGE, in every sense of the word.
THE AGAPE VILLAGE is a virtual continuum of care facilitated by a collaborative network of municipalities, service agencies, faith groups, philanthropic agencies and concerned citizens working together to provide basic human needs, transformational services…and HOPE. Through the AGAPE VILLAGE, serving groups and individuals work with children, unaccompanied youth, single moms & neighbors in need to provide shelter, encouragement and transformational services needed to achieve a quality, self-sustainable life style.
