Empowering Women-led Households
Your continued support (or gift) will have a real and immediate impact in the lives of our women and children. A one-time gift or a recurring monthly gift will help our continuing efforts to meet our families’ Program and support needs. Any amount is very helpful: $25-$75/month helps with recurring family expenses and gas cards to keep families moving; $100-$200 helps with utilities; $500 helps with housing and mortgages.
We need a continued stream of income to keep homes running smoothly, kids clothed, cars maintained, and school expenses paid, so our ladies and moms can stay focused on a path of rebuilding their lives.

You’ve walked this journey with us for 10 years! Thank you for your prayers and help! Agape has provided “Home, Help, Hope” for over 260 women and children who have been able to live into God’s plan for them. With your continued prayers and support, here’s to 10 more years!
Since November 2013 when Agape opened its first house in East Plano, it has grown from 2 beds and a crib to supporting on average 30 families a year in 6 owned and 3 rental units with 55 beds. Since its inception, Agape has provided over 76,000 nights of housing and hope for 262 souls, including 111 women head of household families with 151 children.
Of those families served, 68 women (76%) with 84 children have graduated with jobs that enable them to provide homes and stability for their children whose past experiences no longer define their future hopes.
