AGAPE – The Youth and Parents AGAPE Association Inc.
The Children’s Time project attempts to meet an even greater number of participants, who are children, single mums, and vulnerable families experiencing difficult situations at home (illness, substance abuse, domestic violence, etc.), and thereby suffer from an inordinate amount of stress, anxiety and depression. The adult participants meet regularly to enjoy a healthy dinner and participate in a support group at Agape, while the children (4 to 14 years old) gather at the daycare premises next door, eat a nutritious meal and then engage in fun activities such as baking, arts and crafts, games and sports. These “evenings out” offer participants a chance to find respite, peer and professional support, and a safe place to explore new coping mechanisms to help them deal with their day-to-day challenges.
