Agape Village Health Center celebrates Grand Opening

Agape village ribbon cutting Agape Network celebrated the completion and grand opening of Agape Village Health Center with a ribbon cutting event on October 13, 2023. On hand were local leaders, donors and others from the community. The campus includes 40,000 square feet of new construction in southwest Miami-Dade’s Goulds neighborhood, and includes a health and counseling center, 8 supportive housing cottages, an early childhood education center, and a teaching kitchen.

Founded in 1983, Agape Health Network provides health services for populations with inadequate access to quality care and critical care for substance use disorders. With a focus on Black and Brown, low-income patients, it is a leader in the field of integrated healthcare, combining behavioral health and residential treatment to create lasting outcomes for those it serves. The majority of Agape patients are uninsured, low-income residents, many from the Goulds neighborhood, where incomes average just $14,000 a year.

Florida Community Loan Fund provided New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation for the Apape Village Health Center. The multi-building project doubles former capacity to serve an estimated 11,000 clients annually, and will include 141 beds for residential treatment and supportive housing. The new facility will provide on-site primary healthcare, behavioral healthcare, parenting and family development education, life skills training, job readiness counseling, day care, and early childhood education.

Agape Village will create opportunities for its residents to renew their lives and restore health to their families and communities.
