Agape House

Agape House

Steinbach, Manitoba

Agape House wants to make repairs and renovations to turn its house into a community space accessible to clients, community partners, staff, and volunteers.

The space will be used to:

    • Hold support groups for women, youth, children, and men who have experienced or witnessed gender-based violence.
    • Start a community closet. This project entails transforming Agape’s basement into a client-centred community closet, benefiting its clients facing economic and family violence hardships by providing free access to quality clothing in a welcoming environment.
    • Address a critical need within Steinbach’s community, ensuring that individuals can allocate their limited resources toward other essential needs, while fostering dignity, confidentiality, and self-confidence through clothing choice.
    • Hold community presentations to bring further awareness on gender-based violence, community partnership meetings, volunteer trainings and meetings, and interviews.

Agape House serves all demographics, including Indigenous persons, newcomers to Canada, and vulnerable and at-risk populations.
