Christian-based, family focused

AGAPE of North Alabama is a non-profit organization founded in Huntsvillle, Alabama, in 1969 with a singular mission – and ministry: meeting the needs of children and families in North Alabama with active love and compassion.

AGAPE is a Greek word meaning “love,” a love that fulfills its purpose by reaching out and helping others. While we may be a state-licensed agency, we are also a family … a family that reaches out to help others in need.

Love, security, stability

Working through AGAPE, hundreds of foster parents have provided short-term or longer-term shelter, as well as love, stability and security to children placed in their care. AGAPE also works to place many children in carefully screened and selected adoptive “forever homes.”

In those instances when the most important thing is simply a listening ear or some experienced advice, AGAPE offers the services of Christian-based, licensed male and female counselors to help individuals, couples and families sort things out.
