Sacramento Area Congregations Together (ACT) draws people into meaningful community leadership. Working with religious congregations, schools, and neighborhood institutions in the Sacramento area, ACT brings people together to strengthen the quality of life for families and to improve communities. We are comprised of over 40 member institutions and over 40,000 families.
ACT is not a direct social service provider. Rather, it serves as a catalyst and an agent of social change that is fueled, in part, by the belief that people of faith have a unique "prophetic voice" in bringing out the best from their neighborhoods, community institutions, and governments. ACT works closely with faith-based institutions to provide them with organizing tools that deepen their neighborhood outreach and social justice ministries. ACT does not exclusively work with congregations, however; many public schools and other community groups engage in social change in partnership with ACT.
