Summary

Families who find themselves in economic despair, and living in crisis, find hope at The Agape House of Prescott. We are changing the lives of families in crisis by rebuilding and transforming their lives. The face of the homeless is not who you may think.

They are students at Yavapai College, Bradshaw and Prescott High School, in our elementary schools. The homeless are working at restaurants, serving you at Thrift Stores and Grocery Stores, and Construction sites. They are families living on friends' couches, living in the forest, parking lots, and trying to manage a family while living in a car.

As a Christ-based nonprofit, Agape House helps families rebuild and transform their lives through love, support, training, prayer, and the security of having a home. Agape House is not a shelter; it is a place to call home. An interim place to raise their family, rebuild relationships, and prepare for a life of independence.

Form 990-EZ filed until 2018.

Purpose

We will endeavor to instill success and confidence while keeping the family unit intact. We will provide families with safe temporary housing, while emphasizing accountability and action on the part of the clients. An independent functioning household is our goal. Dignity and self-respect are our aspirations. In short we provide hope to families.


Mission statement

Agape House of Prescott exists to provide long term transitional housing for families who are without a residence. We actively seek to keep the families together while helping facilitate additional support services in order to equip the families for an independent and self-sustained future.


Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Luke 1:34-35)

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (Eph 1:13-14)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Gal 5: 22-25)

We believe Jesus's words in John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Eph 4: 12-13)

We believe in recognizing the dignity of each person, caring and upholding them as people who matter to God. Matthew 25:40 "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."

I commit to not participate in denominational controversies such as, but not limited to, the following: day & type of worship, communion preparation & service, creation theories, family roles or structure, grace vs. holiness living, baptism rituals & traditions, gifts of the Holy Spirit, service order, dietary & cultural differences, end of the world controversies, old vs. new covenant traditions, or political/ racial supremacy. (2 Timothy 2:23)

History

Jim Flower is the co-founder of Agape House of Prescott. Jim founded Agape House after learning that Prescott High School had 58 students that were labeled homeless. After 35 years in the wholesale beverage industry, Jim changed his career to be a part of the solution for the chronic problem for families in crisis. Jim and the staff designed and developed Agape House to be faith-based first and housing second. They believe that the home alone is not the answer, but healing, growing, and training in Christ will end the cycle of homelessness.


Program accomplishments

Our program has an 86% success rate of families living independently one-year after graduation from Agape House. We are changing the face of homelessness one family at a time.


Needs

Homeless students show up to school every day with dirty clothing from sleeping in a tent in the forest, living in their car parked behind businesses in downtown Prescott, and living in vans in parking lots in Prescott Valley. Students are doing homework in the back seat, and get ready for school each day in a public bathroom. The struggle is unimaginable.

Agape House is working to Change the Face of Homelessness. Will you be our partner? Join us on the journey to rebuild and transform the lives of homeless families in Prescott.
