Educational Investment in Tomorrow, Today
The Action Center’s collective programs create children who are more likely to complete high school, not be arrested, have good health and become a productive member of society.
An investment of $2,350 to keep one at-risk child in the Action Center Programs saves an annual societal cost of $37,612 per child in poverty in New York for the remainder of that child’s life time.
Turning Food Insecurity, into Secure Food Resources
Despite food insecurity and significant hunger for our base, tons of food surpluses continue to be thrown away.
We’re changing that. Instead of filling landfills, we’re filling hungry bellies with good nutritious hot food that would otherwise be wasted.
Join The Action Center in being a part of the solution!
