For more than 51 years, Agape Child & Family Services has been a movement impacting the lives of children and families in the Memphis area.
As we’ve responded to suffering throughout the year, from the pandemic, social unrest, crime, political unrest, racial injustice, and more; we have learned that we are certainly better when we “Move Together”
in love as one.
This holiday season, as you plan to gather with your family and friends to celebrate the greatest gift of all (Jesus Christ); please consider a financial gift to Agape Child & Family Services to bless children and families that are less fortunate. Give now at www.AgapeMeansLove.org/donate

Thanks to generous partners and supporters like you Moving Together
with us, Agape Child & Family Services continues to bring hope, faith, skills, support, encouragement, and love to thousands of underserved Memphis children and families with a focus in Frayser, Hickory Hill and Whitehaven.
As a Christ-centered ministry we are dedicated to providing children and families with healthy homes. We fully serve both children and parents with a two-generational focus that reduces poverty and provides healing and sustainability for the whole family.
We have MOVED TOGETHER
and seen great results amongst the families we serve. In the third quarter of this year,
8.86% of families served are now economically above the poverty line
. (This compares with 2.6% of Memphis families living in poverty who ever escape poverty into a better life.)
74% of students served attended school at system expected levels, 99% exhibited acceptable behavior, and 93% had parental engagement.
Agape Child & Family Services has received expedited reaccreditation by the Council on Accreditation.
According to an independent assessment done by Slingshot Memphis
, Agape produces $1.30 to $1.55 in estimated poverty-fighting benefits for each dollar it spends and has very strong use of best practices, systems-level change, and measurement infrastructure.
Agape Child & Family Services is proud to be awarded Governor Lee’s Award of Excellence
, recognizing non-profit organizations that have made a significant impact in their communities. Governor Lee also chose Agape as one of his ’12 Days of Giving’
organizations. These are organizations the Governor chose across the state to provide opportunities for Tennesseans to get involved in their transformative work by giving.
Moving Together with Agape Child & Family Services means moving children and families out of poverty into a thriving and sustaining life they desire and ultimately affecting generations.
By December 31, we need you to Move Together
with us to raise $100,000 that will support 400 local families! Help us continue to walk alongside and support families as they BREAK the cycle of generational poverty and move into a thriving and sustaining life.
As we approach Christmas and the end of 2021, can we count on you to help support families with your year-end donation?
