Here are ways you can serve offsite and from your home!

AGAPE RESOURCE AND ASSISTANCE CENTER
  • Housing
    • Adopt a family – provide encouragement and lift their spirits with an occasional card, email, maybe provide a meal. Provide special birthday or holiday support. Be creative on ways to help these single moms provide happy, encouraging environment for their families!
    • Quality Family Time – Moms come home from work tired. They love to spend quality time with their kids, but are often too tired and rushed to figure out what would work. Create a Family Activity Box, fun for the whole family. Here are some ideas
      • Puzzles
      • Deck of cards – Go Fish, Uno, etc.
      • DVD movie and popcorn
      • Board games for all ages
      • Be creative – create memories!
  • Childcare and Development
    • Birthday in a box – imagine how it would be if a family could not afford even a cake for their children’s birthday. Create a birthday party in a box: fill a box with a cake mix, icing, paper plates and napkins, a blank birthday card mom can sign.
    • Create a fun and memorable celebration for kids age 1-16
    • Crafty Kids – put together craft and activity bags to help kids learn creatively and have fun at the same time.
  • Education
    • Tutor for success – our moms and kids need help with difficult subjects, usually math. Your help getting ready for tests and helping with homework will help them succeed.
