R9B-2015-Annual ReportWe Are Life-Changers: Changing the Story by Breaking the Cycle

Action Ministries Inc. is a nonprofit that provides an extensive network of community partners and volunteers with the tools and expertise to lead fellow Georgians out of poverty. By meeting basic needs of hunger relief, housing and education, Action Ministries removes barriers that prevent thousands of Georgians from breaking the cycle of poverty and realizing their potential.


We believe every person has sacred value and is worthy of respect and compassion.

We believe in the potential of people and the resilience of the human spirit.

We believe that conducting ourselves with integrity in all that we do provides a firm foundation upon which we build and innovate for the future.

Mission and Vision

Action Ministries mobilizes communities to address the challenges of poverty by focusing on hunger relief, housing and education. We envision communities in which the cycle of poverty is broken and everyone has the tools needed to reach their full potential.

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.

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.

Founded in 1963, Action Ministries is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered as a charitable organization in the state of Georgia.
