MISSION STATEMENT: The ACTS Resource Center mission is to equip those experiencing hunger, poverty and homelessness with practical and emotional tools to achieve long term self-sufficiency.
ORGANIZATION HISTORY: Founder Nancy Roble-Hortman began feeding the hungry on the Streets of West Colfax in 2003. Shortly later with community support in 2004, she opened her first food bank (formerly Metro Food Bank) along with her ACTS II Ministry to provide home-cooked meals, live music and ministry to the homeless. Within a year her all-volunteer staff was feeding over 10,000 hungry people monthly. With open arms her Food Bank provides hunger relief to the multitudes... the homeless, motel people, street people, under-the-bridge people, and anyone hungry!!
In 2010, ACTS Resource Center, Inc. was formed as a 501c3, non-profit charity. ACTS Food Bank is located in "Five Points" in Denver, and continues to provide food to anyone in need. The Veterans Assistance Program provides homeless veterans' with a house in Arvada along with food and basic needs.
