Tue, May 11, 11:30 am, via Zoom
Guest Speaker, Janet Collingsworth, founder and Executive Director of Agape Resource and Assistance Center in East Plano, will discuss homelessness in the local area through stories of women and their families, not just statistics.
Located in East Plano, Agape serves single women, single moms, and their children who are experiencing the trauma of poverty and situational homelessness (often associated with abuse and/or domestic violence). Agape provides safe, stable, transitional housing and a grace-filled safety net of support services including counseling, life and job skills, and reliable transportation for the women. For the children, Agape provides child care, child development programs, and counseling. In many cases the children have experienced the trauma of abuse in addition to the uncertainly of homelessness, leaving them feeling scared, angry, guilty, confused, alone, unworthy, and vulnerable.
Agape is intentionally two generational, focusing on transformation, long term impact, and guiding women along a vocational path.
