Agape Child & Family Services is a Non-Profit, Faith-based organization in Memphis, Tennessee. We are dedicated to providing children & families with healthy homes. Humbly serving families is more than a job. Our team members are responding to a call to serve – and that call is answered by following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ in all that we do. We seek to be a strong voice advocating for the physical, psychological, and spiritual needs of children and families and maintain a special commitment to serving under-resourced populations and communities. In the last 10-15 years, we have expanded our reach to provide support and services to Memphis-area children and families right where they live with the goal of providing healing before they ever have to enter into foster care. We currently serve close to 8,000 children and families each year in an effort to keep them safe, smart, and successful through school-based initiatives and place-based services in under-resourced communities; counseling; homeless services; and adoption and foster care while providing opportunities for them to reconnect with and grow in their faith.
