First, it is a fundraising event so that we can provide better for our residents. Second, it is an opportunity to educate and create awareness of mental illness. Third and most importantly, it is a night of emotional healing.

What is Agape Outreach Homes?

Agape Outreach Homes is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which provides housing and care for men with severe persistent mental illness.  Agape is a Greek word meaning “unconditional love”, and Agape Outreach Homes exists to extend this love to our clients and community.  We serve 24 adult men through education/training at the home on all daily living skills (cooking, cleaning, medication management, etc.), and partner with a psychosocial rehabilitation program (PSR) that offers classes about their mental illness, coping skills, and much more. Also offered are opportunities to acquire a GED, get a job, or even attend college.  Our program gives individuals housing, effective treatment, education/training and support with a holistic approach that prevents hospitalization and “graduates” them into independent living.
