Description

Our Mentorship Program is a key component of the ACTS vision and strategic to the success of each ACTS client. Our mentors are composed of dedicated men and women from diverse backgrounds who offer a wealth of knowledge and experience to our ACTS brothers and sisters. We look for mentors who have a heart and who are willing to dedicate themselves in assisting them in fulfilling their personal goals. The ACTS Mentoring Program (AMP) has been life changing to our clients as well as our mentors. There is no greater fulfillment than to see the impact our mentors continue to have on the lives of these men and women. Each spring, our mentors are recognized at the ACTS Community Luncheon for their dedicated service to the ACTS Mission.

Other programs in our Community Outreach mission include: ACTS Samaritan Hands (ACTS Care-Packets for the homeless and the destitute are given out daily to anyone who needs them. They include toiletry and personal hygiene items.) ACTS Feeds the Needy Ministry (ACTS provides hot meals three times a week for the needy. Meals are available on Sundays, Tuesday, and Thursdays at 12 Noon. Additionally, our plans to open an ACTS Soup Kitchen and serve meals daily.) ACTS Community Day (The ACTS Annual Community Day is a day in which ACTS partners with other agencies to provide vital social services to the community. Considered a day of fun, ACTS Community Day also focuses on stopping the violence in our community.)

Finally, ACTS is a faith-based organization with ministries designed to meet the total needs of former incarcerated individuals, their families and community overall. We truly believe everyone deserves Another Chance. Here at ACTS, no one is here to judge you, but to love you as Christ loves you. We firmly believe in redemption. Whether your offense was violent or non-violent, we don’t discriminate. We believe in God’s ultimate plan and purpose for your life. The ACTS Chapel serves as a refuge to the lost, hurting, sick, homeless and destitute. We continue to serve as a beacon of light to the community as well as fulfill our mission and hope to the world. We welcome you with open arms. Our services are non-denominational and multi-cultural. There is always a place for you at the ACTS Chapel. Our services are: ACTS Sunday "Noon Day Glory," 12 Noon and ACTS Sunday "Night Live," 6pm.
