Together, We Make It Happen.
Agape Community Center helps community members maintain and improve their quality of life.
Agape Community Center provides an extensive list of services. With many area families falling below the poverty level, these services provide critical support to area families. We offer a year-round, safe haven with structured educational opportunities for youth. We offer support, resources, family events, and networking for adults. We offer neighborhood revitalization support for the greater service area. Over the past 28 years, we have been gratified by the hundreds of youth and families who, with the support of a compassionate community, have moved beyond the threshold of struggle. In 2012 alone:
- 14,826 guests were served 23,868 community meals
- 158,400 pounds of non-perishable food was distributed to 3,960 low income families
- 1573 volunteers contributed 5,243 hours to serving community meals
- 432 Thanksgiving/Holiday turkeys were disseminated to our low income neighbors
- 1,400 visits to the Center were made by older adults
- 35 neighborhood and civic functions drew 2,606 people
- 1185 lunches were were served to families, children, and adults from the Summer Lunch Program
