We are all people of potential
NEED ASSISTANCE? We’re here to help
Each year more than 20,000 people in Jefferson County and those experiencing homelessness from across our community look to The Action Center for help. People come to us with a variety of needs and with their own unique stories – they leave feeling seen, heard and supported.
We offer free food, clothing and personal items in an environment of respect, kindness, and dignity. We’ll work with you to address your longer-term needs by connecting you to the resources, services and supports that can help you move towards greater stability and hope.
JOIN OUR VOLUNTEERS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
In 1968, a group of volunteers who were concerned about struggling families in their community formed The Action Center. A half century later, volunteerism is still at the core of The Action Center. Our volunteers create a vibrant and active community focused on providing much needed services to the community. And they have tons of fun too!
Breaking the Cycle of Poverty SINCE 1968
The Action Center’s goal is to provide clients with a wrap around of services to meet their current needs and help stabilize their lives. It is through the tireless effort of our volunteers, dedication of our professional staff, and generous donations from our amazing community that The Action Center provides hope and assistance with dignity to break the cycle of poverty.
Community. Compassion. Connection.
