The Agape House
A main focus of Agape Families has been securing a home located in Carmel, Indiana (Hamilton County) near Indianapolis. Through the generosity of donors and the hard work of volunteers, this home has been readied for eight foster children in need of a safe environment, excellent schools, Christ-centered spiritual guidance and most of all, unconditional love.
Needless to say, entering the foster care system is a traumatic and frightening experience. In some cases the only initial sense of security these children have is holding the hand of a sibling or sharing a blanket of a brother or sister sitting nearby; a primary objective of Agape Families is to keep these sibling groups together.
Sherri, pictured below, is the home's live-in foster Mom and is a consistent advocate for these children, tending to their developmental, medical, social, educational and spiritual needs. Sherri embodies the spirit of giving that is core to Agape Families as she raises these foster siblings in a home filled with hope and love.
