Agape Youth and Family Center, 2210 Marietta Blvd.

Be a Homework Buddy, a Reading Tutor, serve lunch and play bingo with seniors, or help with dinner for students – there are many ways to support and nurture our community through Agape. Please join this vibrant and amazing team of volunteers - attend a Volunteer Orientation at Agape - hear program updates, meet staff and tour the new building. Email Dominique Tate at dtate@agapeatlanta.org

The Agape Community Youth and Family Center was started by Trinity in 1997 and serves children and families who live in the Bolton Road community. Agape works to end the cycle of generational poverty through education-based after school programming. Agape children attend Bolton Academy, E. Rivers Elementary, Sutton Middle School, and North Atlanta High School. 

Make God’s Love Visible by Volunteering with Agape:

  • Be a Homework Buddy: Work with elementary or middle school children 1 hour per week and help them complete their homework and succeed in life.
  • Be a Reading Tutor: Participate in Cupp Reading Program training and work with elementary students 1 hour per week to help them master reading by third grade, when children learn to read rather than read to learn.
  • Provide and Serve Dinner: All Agape students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Without Agape, many of the children would not eat dinner. Volunteer to bring dinner to the students.
  • Assist with the Ragtime Seniors Program: Agape supports senior citizens who live in the Bolton Road community to help them stay connected and active. Volunteers provide lunches on Tuesdays and Thursdays, donate prizes for bingo, and help with arts and crafts.

Meals on Wheels

MARK YOUR CALENDARS - Meals On Wheels Volunteer Appreciation and Orientation Breakfast will be Wednesday, September 19, at 8 am at Trinity. Hear from MOW staff about new programs and how MOW is expanding to serve more seniors, more effectively, here in Atlanta. Look for an invitation through Trinity weekly emails. We need all veteran MOW volunteers and all those interested in the possibility of delivering meals. All are welcome!

Meals on Wheels Atlanta nourishes frail or homebound seniors who are unable to prepare or afford the nutrition they need due to extenuating circumstances such as disability or extreme poverty. No Atlanta area senior is hungry, cold, or forgotten. Proper nutrition empowers seniors to live fulfilling lives, and regular visits ensure that they are connected with their community.

Please email Sarah Wikle at swikle@trinityatlanta.org We need more drivers for Meals On Wheels!

Join in God's transformative work through Meals on Wheels Atlanta by: 

  • Delivering meals to home-bound seniors once a week. Shifts are available Monday through Friday mornings, and meals are picked up on Trinity's campus. 
  • Assisting in day programs for cognitively impaired seniors.
