History of Agatha House

Agatha Joseph was a woman known for her kind heart and her open-door policy. The doors were open to humanity. We children grew up with a sense of hope even in hopeless situations. To know her was to know love. She gave each and every person her undivided time, attention, and love—family member and stranger alike.

Agatha Joseph spent her life giving back to the community. She spent most of her time assisting those in need. The children of the community knew her as "mamar." She treated everyone like a long-lost relative as she handed out food to the community. During the last years of her time on this earth, she spent it giving food to the hungry at her church every Saturday. And those few Saturdays that she did not feel up to going out, she would have food delivered to those who could not get it on their own. Agatha taught her children to be strong and stand up for those less fortunate. She helped instill in us a sense of pride for our children of the community. Agatha House Foundation is a continuation of the mission of the life of a woman who is deeply embedded in this community.
