Agape Child & Family Services: Impact Study Update

Agape Child & Family Services supports families in the Memphis, TN area with a cradle-to-career and beyond, place-based initiative, two generational (2Gen) paradigm. It fights poverty by improving housing stability, career advancement, family connectedness, mental health, early-childhood and classroom success, and spiritual growth. As COVID-19 exacerbated the digital divide, Agape surveyed and provided 700+ families with devices, internet hotspots, and training at no cost to enable full access to the digital highway. Agape produces $1.30 to $1.55 in estimated poverty-fighting benefits for each dollar it spends and has very strong use of best practices, systems-level change, and measurement infrastructure.
