One in four students in Richland and Lexington counties is living below the poverty line, thousands are right at the poverty line and hundreds are homeless. In partnership with District Five of Lexington and Richland counties social workers, Acts Metro seeks to empower and give hope to many of District Five’s at-risk students and their families. Equipping families to create safe, healthy and spiritually connected homes does not happen solely by meeting their material needs. While Acts Metro does, indeed, meet these needs by connecting families with appropriate resources, the program places a strong priority on the emotional health and well-being of both adults and children by providing programs to help them heal, grow and move forward successfully.
