Radiance is excited to announce AGAPE of North Alabama as our third Radiance Gives grant recipient!
AGAPE of North Alabama has been meeting the needs of thousands of children and families with active love and compassion since 1969. AGAPE, Greek for “unconditional love,” fulfills its purpose by placing children in loving, Christian homes. Social workers provide therapeutic services in families’ homes to ensure that vulnerable children are on a path toward healing. AGAPE specializes in adoption, foster care, birth parent support, and counseling.
This grant will go to assist AGAPE with providing foster families across North Alabama with a weekend retreat at Camp Skyline in Mentone, Alabama. Foster families who may not otherwise be able to go on a vacation get an opportunity to relax, reconnect with each other, and connect with other families who understand the challenges of foster care. Foster parents will also participate in training sessions that will assist them in dealing with the everyday struggles of caring for children who have experienced trauma. Caregivers will gain knowledge of evidence-based, trauma-informed interventions that they can implement upon returning home. AGAPE expects 110 children and caregivers to attend the 2022 retreat.
