Boy Scouts Give Agape House a New Playground
The Agape House Apartments, which we affectionately refer to as “Agapeville,” was blessed beyond measure this past week with a new playground!
Local Boy Scout Troop 7007 in Prescott, Arizona, selected Agape House for an Eagle Scout Project and built a much-needed playground for the residents! Troop Leader Glenn Brownlie, and his troop and their families worked all day to install a turf play area for the Agape House families. Lowe’s and Agape House donated the turf. A Long-time Agape volunteer generously donated the playset, and Mama’s Gourmet Pizza donated pizza to feed the crew!
Agape House is incredibly grateful for the love and support of the Boy Scout Troop! We wish Eric Crysler the best on the completion of his Eagle Scout rank. Such an impressive young group of men. Agape House families were truly blessed!
About Agape House of Prescott
Families who find themselves in economic despair, and living in crisis, find hope at The Agape House of Prescott. We are changing the lives of families in crisis by rebuilding and transforming their lives. The face of the homeless is not who you may think.
They are students at Yavapai College, Bradshaw and Prescott High School, in our elementary schools. The homeless are working at restaurants, serving you at Thrift Stores and Grocery Stores, and Construction sites. They are families living on friends’ couches, living in the forest, parking lots, and trying to manage a family while living in a car.
As a Christ-based nonprofit, Agape House helps families rebuild and transform their lives through love, support, training, prayer, and the security of having a home. Agape House is not a shelter; it is a place to call home. An interim place to raise their family, rebuild relationships, and prepare for a life of independence.
