Faith-based nonprofits not only support the community by addressing the needs of individuals going through hardships, but they also seek to inspire hope by helping people incorporate their faith into their daily lives in a meaningful way. Below are ten faith-based nonprofits that are changing lives mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Agape Resource and Assistance Center
Although often hard to believe, many women and children in Collin County find themselves sleeping on their friend’s couches due to an eviction, living in their cars, or in an extended stay hotel. Agape Resource and Assistance Center provides housing and transitional services to women and moms and their children facing situational homelessness.
Families entering the program have access to a variety of services such as housing, after-hours childcare and development, workforce preparation, and reliable transportation. By using restored houses and repurposed office spaces, Agape not only provides homes for the homeless, but also gives new life to the area.
If you would like to help these women and mothers change their families’ lives, consider volunteering, or donating to Agape today!
