Rebuilding and Transforming Lives
The Agape House of Prescott is a local nonprofit that is changing lives of families in crisis by rebuilding and transforming their lives. They exist to provide long-term transitional housing for families who are currently without a home.
The face of the homeless is not who you may think. They are students at Yavapai College, Bradshaw and Prescott High School, in Prescott area elementary schools. The homeless are serving you at McDonald’s, helping you at the Thrift Stores and Grocery Stores, and working on Construction sites. They are families living on friend’s couches, living in the forest, in parking lots, and trying to manage a family while their ‘home’ is a car.
Agape House of Prescott shows them love and support and shares the hope of Jesus with them. Agape House has provided discipleship, mentoring, life skills training, and interim housing for homeless families in crisis, resulting in an 86% success rate of families living independently one year after they leave the program.
Agape House of Prescott found that the solution to homelessness is the Pathway to Independence.
