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.
