Agape House is hosting its annual information night on Oct. 23 with a dinner and program. The public is invited to attend to learn more about the services Agape House provides by attending An Evening to Give Them Hope.
Agape House — “agape” is a Greek word meaning unconditional love — is the only private residential home and school for girls in the state of Wisconsin. The nonprofit organization currently offers hope and healing for girls and women ages 12 through 28.
The evening will include a silent auction, inspirational guest speakers, a gourmet dinner and stories about the lives that have been changed at Agape House through the educational, counseling and mentoring programs offered.
The event will be held Oct. 23 at the Geneva National Club, 1221 Geneva National Ave. South in Lake Geneva.
For ticket information and to RSVP, contact Kristine Weir-Martell at 262-325-8944 or ristine@AgapeHouseForGirls.org.
Founded in 1997 by Pam Patterson, Agape House offers Christian counseling services, a mentoring program, individualized educational courses and a safe environment. Patterson always knew she wanted to work with hurting families, but the program takes a large budget. Last year’s budget was $300,000. This year, Agape House hopes to raise $500,000 to meet current needs and to provide services to more girls.
The organization largely is sustained from donations, which may be sent to P.O. Box 68, Walworth WI 53184.
