  • Emergency Assistance - We are fortunate to live in a community where Neighbors help Neighbors. Your donation to the Emergency Assistance program just might be helping one of your neighbors in need keep their electricity or water in service. 
  • Food Pantry - Living in one of the wealthiest communities in the country, it's hard to imagine a child going to bed hungry. However, each month the ACTS Food Pantry serves nearly 1,000 households who experience food insecurity. Your $100 donation will provide food for a family of four.
  • Employment Program - A gift of $100 will assist one of our Nursing Assistant students with the cost of their course books and uniform. As newly certified Nurse Assistants, our students are proud of their accomplishment and we want them starting their new careers looking their best.
  • ACTS Helpline is the only 24/7/365 crisis/suicide prevention hotline serving Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. Helpline offers confidential, non-judgmental listening and crisis intervention. Programs include: Senior Link (call reassurance program for seniors and shut -ins), Surviving After Suicide and LOSS (support for families and friends who are grieving the death of a loved one by suicide), and Renewed Hope (support for suicide attempt survivors). Community training is provided in suicide prevention, intervention, and post-vention, active listening skills, and stress management.
  • ACTS Housing Services program strives to alleviate and end homelessness in a variety of ways, through the Emergency Homeless Shelter and sustainable housing programs. While families are in residence, they receive day care assistance if qualified. The following classes and services are available: intensive case management, life skills, parenting, financial planning, job readiness skills, computer training, nutrition, resume writing, personal life coaching, mentoring and GED tutoring. We help clients with goal identification. Our hands-on approach assists clients in securing housing and bringing stability to their lives.
  • SAVAS empowers survivors of sexual assault to heal and move forward in their lives and is committed to ending all forms of sexual assault in our community.  We offer individual counseling, support groups, a 24-hour crisis hotline, hospital accompaniment, court accompaniment, prevention education programs, and self-defense classes for victims age 12 and up.
  • Turning Points: Imagine you have the power to instantly free the world of the toxic cycle of violence and change it into a magical paradise.  Admittedly that is a dream that as yet has not manifested, right now however you have the ability transform lives forever as a donor for programs that provide Court Advocacy, Community Awareness & Education, Domestic Violence Shelters, Adult & Child Advocacy, Hispanic Services and Behavioral Intervention  Though we are all faced with difficult economic times honestly with donors like you as our partners we have the unique ability to provide a mighty force against the negative impact of abuse in our community.  Help us free families, neighbors, the community and society of the cycle of abuse because transforming lives in a positive, healthy holistic way is the right thing to do.
