In predominantly affluent Takoma Park and Silver Spring, itís easy to overlook the many individuals who struggle to get by. But ACSGW reaches out to vulnerable residents and works with them to build independence and self-sufficiency. Donations of food, clothing, diapers, holiday baskets, and more support clients who need help making ends meet during tough times. When the pandemic hit, ACSGW took a lead role in bringing needed supplies to its hard-hit community, providing meals for 20,000 families (a dramatic increase) and 50,000 diapers a month. Now, at the Learning Center, eight-week courses in English and computers boost job prospects while training in computer repair and technical certifications increase earning power. Fitness programs and learning camps empower youth to make healthy choices and shape their own futures. Serving nearly 3,000 families, the right support at the right time makes the difference.
