Agape Outreach Homes is a non-profit organization which provides housing and care for men with severe persistent mental illness. Agape is a Greek word meaning "unconditional love", and Agape Outreach Homes exists to extend this love to our clients and community. Our goal is to provide a therapeutic environment, while maintaining a sense of "family" among our residents. We strongly believe in the dignity and courage of those battling mental illness. Agape seeks to offer a place of safety and hope, and illuminate a path to recovery and vitality.
