What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Agape has provided substance use disorder treatment for over 34 years in Kitsap County. Agape’s priority populations are low to very low income individuals and pregnant and parenting women. We also serve other adults who meet criteria for treatment as well as youth starting at the age of 13. Throughout the years, Agape has been an innovator developing a variety of programs to meet the needs of our target population. We are continuously looking for new opportunities to create programs which support our target population and prepare them for success. Our current services include substance use disorder treatment, peer support services, permanent and transitional housing programs, on-site licensed childcare, case management services, adult, youth and family drug court programs, behavioral court programs, co-occurring services, vocational programs, parenting programs and the Parent Child Assistance Program. Every Agape client is assessed to determine individual needs and goals.

Parent Child Assistance Program - PCAP

The Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is a FREE program. We are here to help pregnant and parenting mothers get healthy and gain independent family lives. We provide home visitation, support and transportation. We help you create personalized goals for success in recovery and we walk alongside you during the 3-year journey through our program. We know recovery is hard and even if you have a setback, we are here for you.

Population(s) Served

Family Drug Court: This partnership offers incentives for parents involved in dependency cases. Children at risk of abuse or neglect due to drug or alcohol abuse will be less inclined to repeat a cycle of addiction if the parent manages a successful recovery. Persons in the program may benefit from reduced court appearances, increased visitation and the return of children to the home. Those enrolled in the Family Dependency Drug Court program begin a three-phase treatment process immediately on acceptance.
Juvenile Drug Court: The Juvenile Department of the Superior Court is committed to providing innovative, comprehensive, and effective services to youth, families, schools and the community within a quality work environment by professional caring staff.
Adult Drug Court: Drug court is a supervised program through Kitsap County Superior Court for adults who are charged with certain crimes and facing criminal prosecution. Non-traditional and individualized treatment for substance use disorders are offered as an alternative to prosecution. This program features a team approach with supervision and educational opportunities. Random drug and alcohol testing, along with regular court appearances are required by this program.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To continue provide Comprehensive, Affordable, and Culturally Sensitive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment and Housing Programs that meets the innermost needs of Our Participants, Their Families, and the Community.

To continue to provide evidenced based substance use disorder treatment at low costs for all income levels.

To continue to provide housing for low to very low income individuals and families while they address their substance use disorder and other barriers preventing them from succeeding. We want to help our community by stabilizing our clients and preparing them to re-enter the community as productive members of society.

We screen every client with a needs assessment to identify goals and barriers, then facilitate referral to the appropriate services and tailor a treatment program that will support their growth. The focus is on “client voice”, and our goal is to help individuals within the scope of our practice to eliminate barriers to success and support a more stable future.

Agape, per our mission statement, is focused on meeting the needs of our priority populations: “To provide comprehensive, affordable, and culturally sensitive outpatient treatment and housing programs that meet the innermost needs of its participants, their families, and the community”. We do not turn people away because of income barriers and Agape prides itself in exhausting all payment avenues to ensure anyone requesting substance use disorder treatment is provided the services requested.

Our programs impacts individuals and families by quickly engaging with participants to help address and overcome any barriers to housing stability. Our case management staff works diligently with each participant in building support, safety and needed skills to help participants retain housing stability and prevent any future episodes of homelessness.

Agape provides a plethora of group counseling sessions per week with topic focus ranging from the disease concept, relapse prevention, denial, accepting responsibility, life skills, family dynamics, values, goals, skills to become a pro-social person, integrating back into the community and skills for everyday life challenges. Clients have access to individual therapy 1 to 4 times per month with their primary clinician. Treatment services are provided on site Monday through Friday and treatment professionals are available after hours via emergency phone lines.

Clients services are provided based on their individual needs assesssment and a client may have more hours within different programs depending on degree of impairment or need for special services including peer case management, housing case management, co-occurring services, and others. Our substance use disorder treatment services utilize evidence-based curriculum providing psycho-education and treatment for those suffering from a substance use disorder. Agape treats the “whole” person including biomedical and mental health needs, social and economic disparities, living environment, social supports and deficiencies in a self-directed program that promotes self-sufficiency.

Agape has successfully managed multiple social service programs and contracts that include many annually renewed contracts with Kitsap County and Washington State agencies. Agape manages an annual budget over $2.2 million dollars with expected revenues estimated at $2.2 million. Each Agape program is monitored for budget adherence, funding requirements, and deliverables within the project performance timeline. Agape’s finance department submits an accounting of services monthly for processing and payment to each contract holder.

Agape' Unlimited has a well-documented history of providing excellent services on a limited budget. Staff has been able to successfully forecast program costs, access needed resources, navigate emergent budgetary changes and succeed within ongoing economic constraints. Financial and Program Management audits consistently reveal adherence to the highest program standards.

Agape Unlimited is currently going through the annual renewal process for our current contracts as well as writing a new Capital Improvement grant to make necessary upgrades to our main office which will allow us to continue providing quality services to our ever growing population. We are also in the process of major upgrades at our Transitional Housing site, which is a historical building over 100 years old. This project will allow us to continue to provide services to the identified priority population of pregnant and parenting women and their children while maintaining the long-standing heritage of the quaint, waterfront community in which they reside.
