ACTION IN COMMUNITY THROUGH SERVICE OF PRINCE WILLIAM
October 21, 2013

I donated food over the years to ACTS, and our business closes its doors one day in November volunteers each year for Operation Turkey. Until I joined the board I didn't fully understand the tremendous scope of services and support ACTS provides- not just to Eastern Prince William but the entire Prince William County community. Often known for the food pantry, ACTS does so much more. ACTS provides services for battered women and men, advocacy for those victimized by sexual assault and Helpline for those contemplating suicide, or seniors that enjoy a friendly telephone call each day. ACTS reaches out in a powerful way to those in crisis. ACTS is more than just a hand out - ACTS provides support and case management to help individuals break negative patterns and cycles and empower people to move towards self-sufficiency. I believe that is one of the factors that sets ACTS apart.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to expand the workforce training opportunities, so that clients will have expanded opportunities to receive training and enter the workforce - encouraging self-sufficiency and stability in thier lives.
