One Mission: Service

At Action Ministries, we are committed to one simple mission: to serve. Through our innovative housing, hunger relief, and education programs, our goal is to serve our neighbors as well as we can – beyond the moment, through the hurdles, and to self sufficiency. But we also serve as an engine for each person to walk their faith and beliefs with action. We believe each person is deeply valued and crucial to all that we do. This means that YOU are the backbone of our community and the reason why #WeServe.

This Holiday Season, we invite you to discover the gift and joy of what it means to serve with Action Ministries.

Help Assemble Food Boxes for Families
Metro Atlanta Region
What better way to bring amazing people together, than by volunteering with Feed the Hungry in 2018! We have built over 40,000 food boxes this year that have helped thousands of families put food on the table — but we still need YOU to help wrap up the year. We welcome life-changers of all ages to assemble food boxes!

Help Kids Achieve Their Dreams Through After School Tutoring
Metro Atlanta Region
Each Smart Kid! After School program site is focused on meeting achievement benchmarks that include literacy, math, and social/emotional learning skills. Our students face special challenges as they strive to achieve their educational goals. Since 1988, Action Ministries has worked with children and their families to overcome these challenges, achieve their dreams, and ultimately break the cycle of poverty.

Deliver Food to Children and Families During Winter Break
Metro and Northeast Regions
Smart Lunch, Smart Kid is a life changing program that works with faith-based and other non-profit organizations, community friends, foundations, and local corporations to feed hungry children in the communities where they live, when school is not in session. This winter break, we will be delivering food to over 100 families at risk of food insecurity!

Donate Crucial Necessities at Our Daily Bread
Northeast Region
The Our Daily Bread Community Kitchen is in need of hygiene kits, socks, hats, gloves, scarves, and additional winter clothing to be distributed during our special holiday meal at the kitchen. Donations will be collected through December 19th. Please contact Laura DeGroot at ‭(737) 973-0605‬ or to coordinate drop off.

Serve a Warm Meal at Our Daily Bread
Northeast Region
For over 27 years, Our Daily Bread Community Kitchen has been a place of hospitality and friendship, serving meals seven days per week, 364 days per year, and usually averaging more than 75,000 meals per year. Our community kitchen connects our guests to not only food, but also other nonprofit services as we invite partner agencies to our meals to connect with clients.

Provide Vital Wish List Items for Various Education Programs
Serve from Home
Your purchase of supplies from the Education Wish List will be used to build our activity supply kits in Smart Kid After-School program classrooms. The books, games, flashcards, and other resources were selected by our volunteers based on their educational value and age-appropriateness. The food items listed feed the students for their after-school snacks. We serve approximately 65 children daily with after-school snacks so that their brains are nourished and ready to learn during their After-School sessions.

Provide Vital Wish List Items for Our Women’s Shelter
Serve from Home
Your purchase of supplies from the Women’s Shelter Wish List will go to the Women and Children’s emergency housing assessment center in downtown Atlanta. Families arrive at this temporary shelter with very few belongings and are in urgent need of basic care supplies. This includes hygiene products, medicines, and clean clothing. Upon intake, families are given a welcome kit of these basic items which they can then keep as they are moved into permanent housing.
