Welcome to ACSGW -- Newsletter

Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington (ACSGW) was established in 1983 as the collective health and social welfare arm of several local church congregations. Today, ACSGW is a faith-based, nonprofit organization whose mission is to help those less fortunate in our community. We empower those in need through compassionate emergency care, life education, and community development. ACSGW currently provides case management, food, clothing, emergency financial assistance, health and fitness programs, technology education, and job-training.

Our education/job-training programs include: English as a Second Language (ESOL), General Educational Development (GED), computer basics, advanced computer certification programs, and Job Quest workshops. ACSGW currently serves over 6000 low-income families each year. We take a holistic approach to serving this population by providing and growing programs that encourage participants to attain long-term solutions to their general and economic health and well-being.

ACSGW is a safe and understanding environment that works with families and individuals in the Washington Metropolitan Area who are in need of assistance, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, or sexual orientation.
