Beginning with a call to help the community's many low-income children and their mostly single mothers, the church eventually formed a separate non-profit organization, Agape Family Empowerment Center, and -- flexibly addressing needs as they arose -- began creating programs that not only fed people but helped empower them. Over the years, as money and resources permitted, they have operated summer cultural and educational programs for youngsters; after-school programs (currently including tutoring help with computers, cultural arts, and a middle-school organization for enrichment and self-esteem called "Cool Girls For Christ."Using a grant from the Baltimore Community Foundation's Youth As Resources fund, five of the youngsters are receiving training in tutoring; they'll recruit five more, then serve as mentors to 20 younger children in the neighborhood. Heavily leveraging partnerships with other community organizations, Agape works with single mothers in an initiative somewhat like Super Pantries, aimed at "interior life development" and health.
