We Empower families in crisis to rise from despair and dependence to hope and self-sufficiency. We accomplish this by providing a mentor for each family as a source of encouragement, and accountability in a relational setting. Each family sets their own goals to move them forward. Resources flow to help the family as they make progress on their goals.

Here's how the program is transforming lives and our community: Acts Metro helps each family with encouragement, training and accountability. They set the goals they'd like to achieve for themselves. Their goals might be to earn a G.E.D., a training certificate or even a degree. Some may set budgeting and saving goals. Others may set the goal of full time employment to better themselves. After goals are set, a mentor is assigned for each client, who in turn walk alongside the families for the year that they are in the program. By doing so, the families have a supporter, someone to advocate for them, and someone to build a relationship with, when they feel they have lost hope. The program provides budget coaching which allows them to set goals and learn how to prioritize spending.
