Everyone deserves to have a roof over their heads.  ACTS is here to help those who don't. Whether you need a safe place to stay for the night or even a few weeks, ACTS Beverly Warren Family Shelter is open.


Emergency Assistance

We all can fall on hard times.  ACTS Emergency Assistance is here to help with food, utility bills, and other basic needs where we can. Call to schedule an appointment, or stop by during business hours for emergency food.


Sexual Assault

We can be with you from the hospital to the court room and beyond, providing you with the support you need to heal. ACTS upholds the principle that sexual assault is a social rather than a personal problem.


Domestic Violence

Whether you are in need of immediate safety, assistance with a protective order, accompaniment to court, or need help moving forward, ACTS Domestic Violence Specialists can help.


Suicide Related Support

Have you been struggling with thoughts of suicide, or have you lost a loved one to suicide? Our Suicide Related support services are available.


ACTS - Caring for our neighbors' most basic needs

actspwc donationsHunger, homelessness, domestic violence, and sexual assault are not pretty. They make people uncomfortable and often exist in silence. Your donation demonstrates your understanding that these conditions are real and affect our neighbors - whether we see it or not.

As these needs are ever present, we hope you will consider joining ACTS with a recurring donation, but please know that every donation helps. Thank you for your gift.

We could not do it without our volunteers

Volunteers are very special people who offer their time and talents to be of service to others. ACTS volunteers play a key role in helping us follow our mission:

ACTS offers many varied volunteer positions to individuals and groups for each of our programs. Your interests and experience may determine the area in which you wish to serve. Training is provided to all new volunteers.

This past fiscal year over 2,450 volunteers gave ACTS 31,845 hours of time and talent at a value of $780,000! As a result, we were able to help over 90,000 of our neighbors in need.
