Foster care & adoption

“Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.” – Josh Shipp

Here at AGAPE, we’ve seen this statement come to life and know it to be true. Foster care and adoption are at the heart of our organization, which was founded in 1966 with the goal of serving orphaned children. Since then, AGAPE has served thousands of children when they were most vulnerable, and we’ve been blessed to see so many of them grow into strong adults.

And after all these years, the need for foster care and adoption hasn’t gone away – it’s actually increased. That’s why we work to train and equip loving families to serve these kids when they need it most.

If you’d like to learn more about becoming a foster or adoptive parent, we invite you to attend our upcoming information meeting on Thursday, September 20 from 6 pm - 8 pm at AGAPE’s main office in Nashville. This information meeting is required if you wish to complete the State-mandated, six-week training course, known as P.A.T.H. (Parents As Tender Healers), to become a certified foster or adoptive parent. The next P.A.T.H. program will begin the week following the information meeting on September 27 and will be held on Thursday nights through November 1 from 6 pm - 9 pm at Brentwood Hills Church of Christ.

To RSVP for the information meeting or inquire about P.A.T.H., please contact Jeff Fox, Director of Social Services, at or call 615-620-3487.
