Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide ESSENTIALs such as clothing and food.
To offer EDUCATIONAL support through our Tools 4 School event at the end of the summer and our I CAN program throughout the school year.
To ENRICH the lives of the children we serve by hosting special events and offering sports and extracurricular scholarships.
To provide birthday and Christmas sponsorships.
To EMPOWER parents to improve their lives.

Food Pantry: In the fall of 2012, Act Together in partnership with The Vine Community Church opened a food pantry to meet the needs in our community. The food pantry is located in South Forsyth off exit 13 on GA 400. The food pantry is located on the lower/basement level.

Clothing: Act Together families are given new and gently used clothes for their growing children. We offer winter coats, children/teen clothing and shoes as donations allow.

Tools 4 School:
At the end of the summer, Act Together kicks off the school year with our Tools 4 School event. At this event, the children receive school supplies, haircuts, medical and dental screening. In addition the families enjoy an afternoon together with games, crafts, and food.

I CAN:
Not only do children need school supplies, but they also need incentives to encourage them to succeed and make the most of their education. Because of partnerships with local businesses and generous donations from our community, Act Together is able to reward at-risk children for academic success. Education is often the key out of many of the situations children in distress find themselves in.

Little Hands:
Volunteer service projects set up specifically for children under age 12. These projects are set up for children in the community to serve other children. Most Little Hands projects include a short lesson about God's love and serving others. These projects are less than 2 hours to account for short attention spans.

Scholarships- Through generous donations from individuals and local businesses, Act Together is able to provide sports and extracurricular scholarships.

Special Events- Remember the magical time of Christmas when you were a child? We want to ensure that all children regardless of what their family is dealing with, has special holiday memories.

Sponsorships- We provide Christmas and birthday gifts to the children in our ministry. Every child should receive a special treat on their birthday and wake up to find toys under their tree on Christmas morning.
Employment Assistance:
Act Together helps out of work parents to find employment by providing job leads, employment tips, and networking. Act Together also partners with other agencies that offer work mentoring programs.

Support:
Through mentoring, Bible Study and Support Groups

Dignity:
Act Together seeks to provide assistance to parents without robbing them of their dignity. Through our “parent ownership" we allow parents to pay a small fee or give back as a means of showing gratitude so that parents can say they provide for their children.

Referrals and Resources:
Act Together's staff and volunteers come along side families during difficult times and help them obtain the assistance needed. Sometimes this involves referring the family to another nonprofit or organization that is better equipped to meet the need. A family with a special needs child may seek to find a church with programming for special needs children.

With financial support, resources, and volunteer support from the community and through partnerships with churches, businesses and other charities, Act Together is able to meet the needs of the children we serve.

We have fed, clothed, provided school supplies, birthday and Christmas gifts, sports and extracurricular scholarships to hundreds of children throughout North Fulton, Forsyth, Cobb, Cherokee, and Gwinnett counties.
