Our communities have many humanitarian needs, and volunteers associated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church seek to make a meaningful difference in the lives of neighbors in need.
Meeting Community Needs
Mobilizing People to Transform Communities
Adventist Community Services (ACS) - Washington is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that partners with Adventist churches, schools and independent Adventists supporting ministries to make a sustainable and significant impact upon targeted communities. This is principally done through training key leadership in non-profit governance and financial and human resource development.
Adventist Disaster Response
Adventist Disaster Response (ADR) is a volunteer network purposed to respond to the needs of people affected by natural and man-made disasters. ADR coaches churches, schools and families to help them develop emergency plans.
Volunteer today as part of the important community that responds to disasters by being a donations warehouse volunteer, disaster trailer driver, or for a future rebuilding mission trip!

Every year ACS Centers serve well over 100,000 clients with food, clothing, household items, bedding, furniture, rent assistance and other services. Churches are welcome and encouraged to become involved in these programs through in-kind or monetary donations, referrals, volunteering or supporting the addition of programs. Many ACS Centers are becoming Thrift Store Ministries.
