Without hope children living in poverty are likely to continue the generational cycle. With the hope and tools Agape gives, the generational cycle of poverty is broken.
What’s Happening at Agape
Join Us For The 4th Annual Arise Event For Women & Girls Benefiting Agape Youth And Family Center.
This year, Agape will host the Arise Walk/Run as an in-person event throughout Piedmont Park. Hundreds of women and girls will walk to enlighten the next generation of women leaders. Arise will raise awareness about Agape’s mission to empower and support under-served families to discover, embrace and achieve their full potential.
Together, we will pound the pavement for 2.5 miles with mothers, daughters, mentors, mentees, and friends and walk to create change in our community one child at a time, one step at a time. We will enjoy a morning of physical fitness while raising funds that promote academic achievement, reading proficiency, and character development for children in need.
In 2015, the True Inspiration Awards were founded to honor the generous spirit and legacy of Chick-fil-A’s founder, S. Truett Cathy. Each year, Chick-fil-A honors and supports community organizations from across the U.S. and Canada that are making a positive impact in the areas of hunger, homelessness and education. Well, this year, we are thrilled to announce that Agape was named one of this year’s Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Award recipients! This grant will support our efforts as we strive to help students discover, embrace and achieve their full potential. Thank you John Diamond, operator for the Howell Mill and West Midtown locations, for nominating us!

In partnership with Julie’s Dream, Agape students traveled more than 2,641 miles for outdoor experiences in 2019. This included a sponsored trip for 20 teen girls to take a fall hiking trip to New Hampshire in the White Mountains (Joe Dodge Lodge). This once in a lifetime trip was described as a tranquil experience where students could hear the small pebbles cascading beneath their feet as they anxiously stepped onto the next big rock on their way to their next adventure.
