They are the real deal. My wife has received their services for over 10 years. They provide outstanding leadership, outstanding staff and outstanding volunteers. ACWT has a deep love for those in need, at every level of their organization. ACWT truly and always, 100% of the time, convey the message "what can we do for you". And, that attitude of caring was started by the founder Kathryn Shelley and resonates through every person involved in making what the ACWT is today. My wife and I thank them all from the bottom of our hearts. Randy and Lisa Reynolds
