Summary

Challenge

Memphis and Shelby County are faced with significant, interrelated challenges, including pervasive generational poverty, high unemployment, high crime, poor health, urban blight, low educational attainment, and sluggish economic growth. 2017 U. S. Census survey data shows that the poverty rate in neighborhoods served by Agape is up to 55.32%.

Solution

Agape serves thousands of local children and families each year in an effort to keep them safe, smart, and successful by providing services in under-resourced communities. Services include early childhood programs, school-based initiatives, workforce readiness, homeless services, counseling, adoption, and foster care. Agape utilizes a two-generation model, wholly serving youth and parents in a poverty-reduction strategy, providing support, permanency, and sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

Agape's overarching goal is to reduce poverty among families served by 1% each year. Over the past year, 7.5% of families served have moved out of poverty.
