Resident Care Director
Brenda Wallace is our resident care director at Agape house of Prescott. Brenda is a mother to two amazing grown daughters and has a beautiful granddaughter. She was born in Phoenix, AZ and raised in Prescott, making Prescott her “hometown.” She has worked with the homeless population in Yavapai County for over 20 years. She is also an active member of the recovery community and has been for many years. Brenda feels that she is truly blessed to be a part of the Agape House team where she can encourage and be encouraged in a faith-filled organization where she can share her faith with others. Brenda has a passion for working with people struggling with homelessness, especially single mothers, due to her personal life experiences. “My goal is to meet women where they are at and to show them the same mercy and grace that Christ Jesus has shown me throughout my life. My grandmother was my Christ in skin for me, and I would like to be that for other women. I am extremely grateful to be able to do that at Agape House.”

Then Lisa was appointed by Mission Door in 2010 and moved to Phoenix, and partnered with Neighborhood Ministries for the past ten years. There she worked with the College Access and Moms’ Place programs, mentoring and discipling first-generation college students and teen moms.
Lisa felt God’s calling to be nearer to family in her hometown of Prescott, the hub of a quad-city area. “It’s a new season. It may not look like LA or Chicago or Phoenix, but the need in Prescott is just as significant.”
