It is a delight and honor to invite you to participate in our 2023 Legacy Gala on Saturday, September 23, 2023 from 6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. at the American Bank Center.
As a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to providing high quality foster care in South Texas by supporting foster and adoptive families, we have been working diligently in the areas of prevention, foster care, adoption, and aging-out to provide support and mentorship for vulnerable children in our community. Regretfully, child abuse and neglect have continued to rise and the work of Agape Ranch is needed now more than ever.
- More than 60% of the children in our county are being placed outside of our county due to the lack of foster homes in our community. This results in many children being separated from their siblings and the only community that they know.
- More than 90% of young adults aging-out of the foster care system will become homeless, incarcerated, in prostitution, sex trafficked, or dead within three years.
- Agape Ranch will establish a safe environment of 24 homes where foster children can receive the support they need in order to mature in all aspects of their lives. Upon completion, our self sustaining community will care for up to 132 foster children and young adults at a time.
- The Thrive program will provide housing and mentorship for young adults during their college or trade school career.
The evening will begin with a social hour and silent auction and continue with dinner and inspirational testimonies as we learn about the next chapter of Agape Ranch.
