“All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they all shared everything they had.”
Sharing God’s love while providing for those in need
Acts 4 Ministry (Acts 4) is a non-denominational, tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports the needs of families and individuals in financial distress through the collection and distribution of reusable furniture, clothing, and housewares.
A Waterbury founded and established organization, Acts 4 serves Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills communities. Since incorporation in 2005, the organization has cumulatively provided over 200,000 articles of clothing, furnished over 1,100 residencies, and stocked cabinets with over 30,000 houseware items. All items were provided free of charge through the mission of providing a gift of love to someone in need. The organization recognizes that not every person shares the comforts of home.
Through a team of dedicated volunteers and staff, the organization strives to create a sense of normalcy for the client and to provide quality products through caring for each donation as if we owned it ourselves.
Our vision is to build relationships with people as we provide for their basic needs. Acts 4 seeks to partner with churches, social service agencies, and public schools to help identify those with needs and to serve them in the context of the broader community regardless of their faith or willingness to participate in religious activities, race, creed, or national origin.
