A community and region where available resources are used to eliminate needs and improve the common good
To unite in God's name to connect unmet needs with available resources
Acts 4: 32-35
"All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus And God's grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need."
AN IDEA THAT LED TO ACTION
Acts 4 Others was started in 2012 by a group of individuals in Decatur, Texas seeking to pool resources among different churches and charitable organizations to give back to the community, and fight poverty. Acts 4 Others helps facilitate various projects to accomplish this purpose. The organization’s primary focus has become fighting homelessness. Through a program partnering with churches and organizations throughout the community, Acts 4 Others finances rent and basic living expenses for people for up to six months, thereby freeing them to focus on looking for a job, and development the skills necessary to sustain employment. Acts 4 Others is continually on the search for new needs to meet, and new partners to help Acts 4 Others meet those needs.
