Celebrating 26 Years of Love and Healing
Agape House, celebrating its 26th anniversary, is more than just a name. Agape, meaning unconditional and never-ending love, perfectly describes the house's mission. Founded in Delavan and now thriving in Walworth, it's a beacon of hope for hurting teens and families, offering counseling, schooling, and a residential program.
The Inspiring Start of Agape House
Our story with Pam starts 37 years back when she and her husband stepped into the role of foster parents. Their first act of kindness was taking in her husband's nieces and nephew, who were escaping an abusive home. This blossomed into a calling to start a Christian Children's Home. What started in their home, under Pam's loving care as a house mom, has grown into a much larger mission.
From House Mom to CEO
Transitioning from a hands-on role to a CEO was a big leap for Pam. But, this change allowed Agape House to expand, providing education and counseling for emotionally struggling kids. Pam reflects on missing the early days, but takes pride in how the house now offers a more comprehensive ministry.
Witnessing Miracles and Transformations
Pam shares awe-inspiring stories of God's provision, from unexpected legal help to timely bread donations. The most rewarding part, though? Seeing the transformation in the kids’ lives, from their first steps into her office to becoming healed and whole individuals.
The Agape Boys Home: A Leap of Faith
The Agape family grew with the addition of a boys home, a decision initially daunting to Pam. Yet, after prayer and community support, a nearby church generously provided a building, allowing Agape to extend its loving services to boys as well.
Community's Role: It Takes a Village!
Agape House thrives on community support, never turning away a child due to finances. From volunteering to donations, there's always a way for everyone to contribute to this noble cause.
Everyone Is Welcome
Pam emphasizes that while their foundation is Christian, Agape House opens its doors to all, offering love and healing regardless of religious beliefs. Their guiding principle? Love conquers all.
