ACTS is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation of COVID-19 as it affects our community.  As an important source of services for those in crisis, we have every intention of continuing our mission especially in times of uncertainty. We are doing our best to minimize risk to our staff and clients and have made some decisions that affect how we provide services in order to ensure your safety.

Masks are required in all ACTS facilities (except Thrift Store, where they are strongly encouraged). Our policies are reviewed every two weeks to assure compliance with CDC recommendations.

ACTION in Community Through Service (ACTS) provides services to our neighbors experiencing crisis.  If you are in our community, you are our neighbor.  We welcome every race, ethnicity, color, religious belief, status, sexual identity, gender identity, and gender expression.  Crisis doesn’t discriminate and neither do we.  Diversity and inclusion are vital to our mission, and we affirm and respect the equality of ALL members of our community.  Having a variety of backgrounds and perspectives help businesses and communities thrive and we celebrate those differences.  We proudly support the removal of all barriers that negatively impact our community, particularly when it impedes their ability to find and receive crisis services, and are committed to creating a community where no one goes without or suffers alone.

Afghan Refugees

Currently, we are not directly involved in providing relief for the Afghan refugees as a group. However, we stand ready to help any individual households who can benefit from our services.  In this region, Catholic Charities is the lead agency (along with Lutheran Social Services) for aiding in the resettlement process.  Click Here is a link to ways individuals can help.
