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.

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.
