Introduction

We thank you for taking the time to learn more about what Agape Villages does and the impact we have on the children in foster care we serve. We have a 5 day video series with videos from Agape staff, including the President, Program Director and social workers, resource parents and even a former foster youth.

We need your support, especially at this time of COVID-19, when we’ve had to cancel important fundraising events. Come back and see new videos each day, and you will see exactly how your donations Help a Child today!

Videos

Janet Kleyn

President

Agape is a word often used in a spiritual context to convey love and togetherness. For that reason, it was the name chosen for the agency many years ago. The agency’s work must be carried out with both love and commitment. It is a path Janet decided to walk when she left the corporate world of business and finance more than 22 years ago, and she has never regretted it.

Hank Lawson

Director of Church and Community Relations

Hank is passionate about kids. And he’s passionate about Agape. He’s been with Agape, talking about the need for resource parents, for 5 years. He’s in demand as a preacher and as a speaker at community events. 

Anjru De Leon

Former Foster Youth

Anjru is a student at San Joaquin Delta College. He is student body Vice President. Alongside law and politics, he enjoys vigorous physical activities such as volleyball and cross country running. He is already involved in helping others and plans to continue that into the future. We’re very proud of you, Anjru.
