    About Us

    Our Vision: Agape Villages will become the foster care agency of choice in fulfilling the needs of disadvantaged children and their families throughout our service area.

    Our goals include:
    - To give dysfunctional biological families an opportunity to heal, grow and develop.
    - To strengthen, where possible and appropriate, the foster child's relationship with his/her family to promote reunification.
    - To provide a safe and nurturing environment for abused and neglected children until they can be reunified with their biological families, be adopted or become emancipated, as appropriate.
    - To provide children and adolescents with supportive relationships with caring foster parents who are dedicated to a lifetime commitment where reunification of the child with his/her biological family is not possible.
    - To develop and maintain trained and certified foster families in which each child is nurtured and valued.
    - To advocate for and procure the very best ancillary support services available to meet each child's unique needs.

    Services by which we distinguish ourselves include:
    - On-call availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
    - Weekly in-home case management by a master's level social worker
    - Effective training requirement prior to certification as competent, fully qualified foster parents
    - Support groups to meet the need of our foster families
    - Substantial financial support for foster families
