Serving Our Community for 35 Years

ACTC opened in 1985 following a study by the Towson Area Ministerial Association that identified ways to meet the needs of people coming to churches for help. Since then, the initial consortium of 14 area churches has more than tripled in number.

Today, with the support of dozens of churches and a community of partners, our service area incorporates 19 zip codes in northern and central Baltimore County and northern Baltimore City.

The center is overseen by a director and small staff and operates with a team of more than 60 trained volunteers.
