At Action Ministries, we have a hands-on approach to caring for our community’s most vulnerable citizens. When we see neighbors in need, we take action…
- A child is hungry, and we provide a nutritious meal.
- A family is homeless, and we offer shelter and support.
- A veteran struggles to adjust to civilian life, and we reach out with a helping hand.
- A struggling individual seeks a brighter future, and we connect her with educational resources.
We start with meeting these basic needs, and we end up transforming lives.
- With food in their stomachs, children can learn and grow.
- With a roof overhead, families can take the necessary steps toward stability.
- With support networks in place, veterans can share their strengths and talents with others.
- With the right education and life skills, people can become self-sufficient.
Our vision is to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty and ensure that everyone has the tools they need to reach their full potential. In recent years, we have become much more strategic in our pursuit of this goal, building a strong organizational infrastructure and focusing on best practices and key programs that can be replicated statewide. Under the direction of President and CEO John R. Moeller, Jr., Action Ministries has become a leader in assisting people in need and mobilizing communities to tackle the challenges of poverty.
Action Ministries has developed a dynamic and highly effective model that leverages volunteer hours, philanthropic support and in-kind contributions to achieve greater results through an extensive network of community partners and volunteers. We provide the tools and expertise to lead people out of poverty and work hand-in-hand with churches, scout troops, community groups, local businesses and countless others, and as a result, we have a reach far beyond many other nonprofit organizations. Last year alone, we engaged almost 500 community partners and more than 21,000 volunteers in local service projects addressing hunger, housing and education needs in 35 counties throughout northern Georgia. Every client served, every volunteer engaged, and every friend of the organization is an important part of the Action Ministries family. Together we make a difference in the world by leading people out of poverty.
Established in 1963, the organization has grown from an outreach ministry of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church into an ecumenical 501(c)3 nonprofit organization uniting people of all faiths who are called to serve. Today and every day, Action Ministries’ staff and volunteers are working to end hunger and homelessness – and to provide much-needed educational opportunities that uplift entire communities.
As we celebrate 50 years of service, we remain focused on the future… How can we do more to benefit our communities? How can we make our actions speak loud and clear? How can we combine our individual efforts to have a greater impact long term? There are no easy answers, but we are certain of one thing: we’d like you to be part of the solution. Action Ministries offers an extraordinary return on your investment by leveraging every donation multiple times, and we ensure that the people who need it most feel the impact of your generosity. Please join with us... It’s time to take action!
