|What we do | How we can help you|
Adventist Community Services (ACS) is the humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that works within this United States and Bermuda. Adventist Community Services meets people's immediate needs through social services such as tutoring and mentoring programs, youth volunteer corps, health screening, education, inner city missions, and disaster response.
In the Southwestern Union, Adventist Community Services Disaster Response provides services to disaster victims, their families, and communities. When disaster strikes, local church and conference disaster coordinators evaluate the damage and situation, and then take appropriate action. Collection centers are designated to receive donated items and distribution centers are set up to serve the needs of victims with clothing, household items and other items. If needed, Adventist Community Services Disaster Response manages warehouse operations where donated goods are stored and organized for distribution. It also provides door-to-door visitations, listening posts, and pastoral care for disaster victims' emotional and spiritual needs.
