Heartlight: Do Justice with Bryan Stevenson

Agape Child & Family Services invites you to explore justice and mercy by joining us for HeartLight: Do Justice on March 2, 2018 at Hope Church. Social rights activist Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy, will be our guest. We will examine where Memphis has been, where we are and where we need to go.

Domestic violence accounts for more than 50% of the assaults that occur in Shelby County.

Many victims fleeing domestic violence are faced with homelessness. Through Agape’s Families in Transition program which serves homeless, pregnant and/or parenting women and their children, we served nearly 100 families in the past year. None of those families returned to homelessness and 100% of the children were promoted to the next grade. All of those fleeing domestic violence remained free from their abuser.

Acceptable school attendance in Shelby County is 57%.

However, children served by Agape have acceptable attendance of 90-95%. Through our partnerships with local schools and agencies, our connectors work directly with children and families to effect just this type of positive change.

Memphis’ unemployment rate is now at 8% – almost double the national rate.

Whether it’s a child in need of after-school tutoring or an adult in need of job readiness skills, Agape and its community partners are there with support and encouragement. In fact, it takes more than 1,800 volunteers to help reach those we serve. Learn more about how Agape helps keep children and families in Memphis successful.

Volunteers are the life force behind our ministries.
