Family stability is critical to individuals and the community. Children who live in unstable homes face the risk of increased school mobility, decreased attendance and poor school performance. The primary goal of this program is to increase stability and reduce student mobility through outreach and case management services.
Families come to us on the edge of homelessness and in a crisis. In partnership with United Way of the Mid-South and the Siemer Institute for Family Stability, Agape is pleased to offer programs that designed to assist families of school-aged children. Families who participate in the Siemer program gain access to other programs offered by Agape.
Requirements for Eligibility include:
- Family muse be residents of Shelby County
- There must be at least one school-aged child (ages 6-18) in the family
- Annual income must be at least 30% of the Area Median Income
Agape’s homeless prevention services help eligible families who are at risk of being homeless, having received court-order eviction notices.
