Wells of Agape was founded by Ron and Donna Wells as a non-profit tax exempt organization.

When after serving as foster parents for 11 years, Ron and Donna Wells saw firsthand the need for family restoration.

In 2008, with the leading of the Lord, they developed a faith-based program that would model, mentor and teach families that would allow them to become successful in life as well as usher in restoration within the family unit.

Wells of Agape currently provide faith-based counseling, parenting classes, anger management classes and life skills training. They are requested by local prisons to minister as well.
