Agape serves a community of more than 2,000 school-age children by providing a variety of programs to empower these children from under-served families.
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.
Each year Agape collects and distributes backpacks filled with school supplies to 2,000+ local kids in need. Corporate friends and supporters host backpack drives and volunteer for Backpack Prep Day and Distribution Day making each year a tremendous success.
Without intervention, the children in the Bolton Road community are most likely to enter into the complex maze of intergenerational poverty with limited education and limited opportunity for employment.
With a 100% high school graduation rate, Agape makes a difference.
Agape has steadily grown, thanks in large part, to the overwhelming commitment of
volunteers who bring this program to life each day. The lasting effect of Agape is the positive, long-term relationship with an adult—one who can expose that boy or girl to opportunities beyond Bolton Road and make a difference in how he or she views their place in the world.
