Agape Child and Family Services is delivering on its promise to help Memphis students like Destiny Hampton graduate.
Agape helped Hampton with things like school supplies and uniforms when her parents couldn’t. Now, Hampton plans to attend LeMoyne-Owen College. Agape President and CEO David Jordan says addressing those systemic problems helps students succeed.
AGAPE serves almost 500 kids in nine schools, providing support in family engagement to help students achieve their potential. One hundred percent of students who stayed in the program from 9th grade to 12th grade graduated; 93% of them have gone on to post-secondary education.
