Agape House-Eastman Crisis Centre is a charitable, non profit organization funded through a grant from the Provincial Government Department of Families, as well as through grants, fundraising and community donations. As one of ten women’s shelters in Manitoba, Agape House serves a large area that extends north to Beausejour, south to the U.S. Border, west to Winnipeg and east to the Ontario border. Agape House began operating in December 1985 out of a three bedroom bungalow. After concerned citizens recognized the need to help families in the Eastman region, the women’s shelter moved to a five bedroom house in Steinbach to facilitate the growing need for services. Today the shelter has 16 beds and, in an average year, sees over 200 clients, and responds to 1500 crisis calls.  Agape House is governed by a volunteer board of directors – find out more by following the link.
