The Agape House is a non-profit agency that serves single women (18-24) from all religious, ethnic and racial backgrounds.

It serves heterosexual, LGBTQ+, with an emphasis on the under-served, over-represented which are women of color who have been in foster care, or who have aged-out of foster care or those who simply are at-risk of being homeless and/or exploited.

It is our firm conviction,

which data supports, that

providing a preventative

program with a seamless

transition to Agape House

is far superior to the woman 

ever getting to the streets,

being trafficked, or being

homeless. We plan to get to

the woman before the streets do

and we need the help of volunteers

to succeed.

11 ways to volunteer:

1. “Surrogate Mom” who primarily commits to being in the woman’s life

2. “Professional Mentor” who assists in identifying job & internship openings

3. Help in preparing the rooms

4. Volunteer at The House Thrift Store

5. Help with office activities

6. Volunteer to find jobs, positions and internships for the women

7. Help raise funds individually and with capital campaign efforts

8. Speakers’ Bureau involvement

9. Board committee involvement

10. “Sweat Labor” in conjunction with union involvement

11. Other

We need some

A caged bird stands on the grave of dreams, (her) shadow shouts on a nightmare scream (Her) wings are clipped and (her) feet are tied so (she) opens (her) throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill Of things unknown but longed for still and (her) tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom."
