About Us

Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization serving the residents of the Greater Prince William Area, which includes the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. ACTS has a budget of $3 million, 80 employees, and hundreds of volunteers. Founded in 1969, ACTS’ mission is to alleviate hunger, homelessness and interpersonal violence in order to help individuals achieve self-sufficiency. Services include the Food Pantry, which distributes an average of 60,000 pounds of food monthly to local families; the Beverly Warren Homeless Shelter, which provides temporary housing and case management to families and single men; an anonymous crisis telephone service, which answers over 4,500 calls monthly; support groups for those who have lost a loved one to suicide or who have attempted suicide; the only sexual assault crisis center serving Prince William County; and a comprehensive domestic violence prevention and intervention program to include the whole family—women, men and children.  ACTS is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
