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.
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 housing in the suburbs of Denver along with food and basic needs.
The ACTS Lighthouse ~ A Symbol of Hope!!
"Lighthouses symbolize the way forward and help in navigating our way through rough waters... whether those waters be financial, personal, business or spiritual in nature. Nothing else speaks of safety and security in the face of adversity and challenge quite the way a lighthouse does." ~ John Lund
