2017 Annual Report

Letter from the CEO and Board of Directors

This report is dedicated to our many donors and volunteers as well as our dedicated staff. ACTS could not operate and grow without their support of our mission to help our neighbors in Prince William County. They are the ones to thank for making Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 a great year for ACTS and giving us the ability to help over 80,000 of our neighbors.

ACTS grew significantly in our Fiscal Year 2017. We further expanded our services to the Western part of Prince William county by opening an office in Manassas. The Manassas office has expanded our capability to provide both our Crisis and Trauma Services, as well as our Human Services programs to all those living in our area. We also bought a new building, the Hunger Prevention Center, to extend the capabilities of our food pantry. We have made progress in bringing it on-line and it is now in limited use. In addition, our events like the IWALK, Operation Turkey, and the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner were successes and expanded both our donor and client bases. ACTS was also chosen to be the recipient of Comcast Cares Day, which through the work of hundreds of volunteers, completed many projects that beautified the environment that greets our clients, and upgraded many of our buildings. FY17 was a banner year for ACTS.

As we look forward to our 50th anniversary in 2019, ACTS will continue to carry out and expand its mission to help our neighbors in need. Each member of our staff and all our volunteers do their upmost every day to help our neighbors and show them that we care. ACTS has grown in 2017 and with your help we will continue to grow and make a difference in people’s lives every day.

2017 Audit and 990

 

Each year, ACTS publishes a audit on its work. We are grateful to our supporters for their help in achieving our mission of fostering hope, providing relief and promoting self-sufficiency of our Prince William area neighbors in crisis.

 

 

The 2017 Audit highlights:

  • ACTS finished Fiscal Year ‘17 with a small surplus, which marks the third year in a row this has happened. It is the tradition of ACTS to invest in our community, and the surplus will be used to both continue and expand our current programs.
  • Using Abila Accounting Software, we have implemented a fixed assets module, which allows us to track our physical assets like furniture, supplies, and hardware not only from an accounting perspective, but a physical one as well.
  • ACTS received a grant from the Department of Criminal Justice Services in upwards of $580,000. This funded the expansion of our Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Services programs and the opening of our Manassas office.
  • Fiscal Year 2017 also marked an investment in technology. The new phone system we purchased allows us to reach each other and clients faster than ever before.
  • 59% of funding to ACTS comes from individual donors, corporations, self-generated income, and faith-based partners.
  • 41% of our funding came from federal, state, local and county grants.
  • Forecasting for FY ‘18 demonstrates positive cash flow and gives us the ability to continue our existing programs.
