Our organization operates on a tight budget and relies on the help of supporters like you. In order to meet our clients’ needs, we offer discounted fees based on a sliding fee scale which depends on the client’s income. Therefore, Agape’s counselors are frequently asked to work on a discounted or even pro bono basis, which puts further demands on our resources. Over the years, Agape has donated millions of dollars in charity client hours.

 

 

Ways that you can help include:

– Monetary Donations: Your donations go to the Neighbors in Need Scholarship Fund, which is used to compensate counselors for discounted and pro bono sessions, and to General Fund, which includes things like books, play therapy supplies, counseling supplies, office supplies, and furnishing for our offices.
