Mission Statement

Agape Village is a tiny house village that exists to be a place of safety and stability for those experiencing houselessness. Agape will equip people to live healthy and successful lives transitioning out of houselessness.

Description

Agape Village was born out of the mission and vision of Central Church of the Nazarene to love God and to love their neighbors. In recognizing that many of their neighbors were living in tents and in chaos they felt led to provide a place for people to find safety, stability, and support they need. The village opened in December 2019 to its first participants.

Agape Village provides participants with a sleeping pod so they can focus on healing and growth without the worry and stress that comes with wondering where they will sleep at night, or how they will keep their belongings secure. Each of our program participants works with case managers to help them achieve their goals.
