Mission Statement

ACS's mission is to promote the well-being and betterment of the Brooklyn community (with special emphasis on Bedford-Stuyvesant). ACS opens its doors to offer services in the area of education, health, social and emotional awareness, thereby enhancing the community's overall quality of life.

Organizational Background:

Antioch Baptist Church was founded in 1918 to address the spiritual life of children, young adults, families, and senior citizens in the Bedford Stuyvesant community of Brooklyn. Antioch Community Services (ACS) a faith-based initiative was founded in 1991 to meet a variety of human service needs of parishioners, their families, and community members. Over the last seventeen years, it has provided a variety of developmental programs for youth and seniors, such as afterschool, career options, GED Prep, and several other one-time social services programs based on available funding.


HHAP has provided educational and career development services to more than 300 students, whom we can trace into adulthood and note the direct impact of our services on the individual, family and the overall community. In our last service year, the program was credited with raising the grade point average of 50% of its students by a minimum of 10 points.The program focuses on motivating our youth to excel, while assisting them in personal improvement toward their highest levels of academic achievement, interpersonal development, self-actualization, and cultural awareness during the daily three and one half hours program. Our ultimate goal is to ensure each child will develop into a self-sufficient, contributing member of his/her community, our nation, and global 21 st Century environment. Furthermore, our program helps reduce the number of youth involved in gangs and community violence, by providing a "safe haven" during the typically unsupervised after-school period. All students in attendance increase their worldview by attending field trips and using technology.
