The Agape House, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, founded by Kiti Ward (Executive Director) that serves as a bridge to equip and empower 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.
We provide a place where they can grow and develop while receiving housing, wrap-around therapeutic services, job training, academic and employment training, living skills and more.

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.
