In Person Opportunities

Sponsor and Install Agape Homes Landscaping

Agape Homes CDC creates quality affordable housing for diverse communities without concentrating poverty. The Agape Homes CDC goal is to give the families in the Agape Development community an affordable option to own a home. Sponsoring the landscaping and providing the necessary labor to install the landscape items helps keep the cost of the homes at an affordable level while also creating a welcoming space for our new homeowners.

This sponsorship opportunity covers the expenses of all landscape items: trees, sod, bushes, dirt, and mulch. All supplies will be ordered and onsite for your group to complete installation! This project of landscaping one home is best for 5-7 people but can accommodate up to 10. It is estimated to take approximately 3 hours, depending on the speed of your team.

The cost of this sponsorship is $5,000 per home with no limitation on how many homes you can sponsor as they become available and ready for sponsorship.

Program Speaker / Activity Leader

What knowledge and experience can you share with our neighbors? Lead a conversation or activity for our women or teens for an evening. Need ideas? (but not limited to these) Personal testimony. Estate planning. Budgeting. Careers. Self defense. Cooking. Yoga. Tie-dying shirts. Card making.

Provide Reliable Childcare

Providing safe and reliable childcare makes the difference in neighbors being able to attend programs that can change their life! Free childcare overcomes a significant barrier to attending a program. By volunteering your time, you are giving peace of mind to parents looking to become community leaders. Volunteer commitment is to commit at least twice a month.

Weekly Mondays 6:30-8:00pm

Alternative Ways To Get Involved


Snacks are provided to both the children and teens during program time. Snacks can be delivered in person or sent to the office via Amazon.

Order today!

Program Meals

Sharing a meal help develops relationships deeper than just within the set program curriculum. It allows a time of fellowship and relationship building between neighbors and staff as well as removes the obstacle of having to find time to cook a meal before participating in a program.
