September 2014 Dallas, TX - RealFoundations, a global professional services firm focused on the real estate industry, has announced matching funds support for North Texas Giving Day donations to Agape Resource and Assistance Center, Inc. Agape serves women and children in poverty and crisis with shelter, education and counseling. The North Texas Giving Day campaign is an annual online giving event that provides nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure to — and start relationships with — new donors, and for people in North Texas to come together to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits.
“We are so honored and excited that RealFoundations is supporting Agape to help single women, moms and children in crisis overcome homelessness and break the poverty cycle,” said Agape Executive Director Rev. Janet Collinsworth, who opened the non-profit in November, 2013. Agape reached capacity in March 2014. "Sadly, there are currently less than 300 beds in all of Collin County to serve thousands of people who are homeless. About 75% of Collin County homeless are single women and moms with kids," Collinsworth stated.
“Partnering with Agape is a natural fit for RealFoundations.” says David Stanford, an Executive Director of Dallas based RealFoundations. “The passion and professionalism with which our employees meet the real estate needs of our clients are matched by their collective desire to give back to the communities in which we operate. Helping Agape increase safe, stable, affordable housing by utilizing existing structures and resources is exactly the kind of innovative solutions for which RealFoundations is known."
