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
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.
