Our House

Seattle, WA

The AGAPE HOUSE is in motion!

In 2016, we acquired our first rental home and our campaign continues to raise the $100,000/year to cover operating costs and services.

In the next year we hope to expand with additional rental housing units and services. We will accomplish this through contributions from private donors, individuals, faith-based organizations, grants awarded, and through social-entrepreneurship.

Statistics and FAQ'S

"According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, 60% of exploited or trafficked youth have been in the foster care system".

In Seattle and King County, African/Black American are over represented and under served. While they account for 7% of the overall population, African-American kids make up approximately 1/3 of the children in the foster care system and 1/3 of homeless youth in King County.

programs

The Agape House is committed to interrupting this cycle. Our early intervention programs are intentional and create a seamless transition from foster care to The Agape House. We want to reach our girls before the streets do. We will accomplish this through having a support system for these young women.

Our Leadership team will consist of 10+ Board Members, 7+ Volunteer "Dream Team Advisory Group" and 10+ Community of Women who will be the Mother/Mentor Volunteers to help these women become who they were always intended to be.
