We at the Agape Pregnancy Resource Center realize that our most valuable resource is our exceptional volunteer staff. Our clients come to us with many difficult issues and we want to serve them with care and integrity. As our mandate includes maintaining a standard of excellence, we are committed to ongoing training. Agape Pregnancy Resource Center relies heavily on the service and commitment of volunteers in their communities. Just remember, God meets the need but you are his instrument. If you have a passion to help women and serve your local community, consider becoming a volunteer. Women ministering to other women in the strength and power of God is the heart and soul of The Agape Pregnancy Resource Center.
