Agape community development & empowerment corporation
The AGAPE Community Development & Empowerment Corporation (ACDEC) was established from a desire of AGAPE Church of Los Angeles and its leaders to serve as a community-based organization designed to effect, impact and increase the quality of life for residents in South Los Angeles and surrounding communities. Having surveyed the financial, academic, health, employment, housing, and safety statistics of the community, several disparities indicated a significant decline in the quality of life for the residents of these populations ranging from food insecurities, a lack of quality health care, and mental health challenges.
The AGAPE Community Development & Empowerment Corporation (ACDEC) mission is to affect significant and sustainable improvement in the quality of life for all citizens by providing quality social services that will improve, develop, and stabilize neighborhoods in South Los Angeles through the promotion of community and economic development activities that will engage in the neighborhood development services that address critical needs of targeted populations.
The AGAPE Community Development & Empowerment Corporation (ACDEC) has a goal to provide a robust delivery of services and community engagement which are directed to improve the quality of life within South Los Angeles.
