The ASSISTANCE CENTER OF TOWSON CHURCHES (ACTC) opened its doors in 1985 to provide emergency help, including food, eviction and utility cutoff prevention, payment for prescriptions, and lunches for the homeless. It began as the result of a study conducted by the Towson Area Ministerial Association exploring an effective and efficient way to meet the needs of people coming to churches requesting help. Currently, with the support of 50 churches and other generous donors, its service area incorporates 21 zip codes in central Baltimore County extending up to the Pennsylvania line.
Central organizes collections of non-perishable food items 2-3 times a year, but we also have a collection space to receive items throughout the year. Items may be dropped off in the concourse at Serve Central on Sundays or Monday – Wednesday. You may also take items directly to ACTC — see more information at the link below.
