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.
