As I officially come on as the new Executive Director of ACTS, I am filled with excitement and anticipation. During the last month, I had the opportunity to observe the dedication, hard work, and commitment of our staff, volunteers, and board of directors. I witnessed the wonderful relationships between our tutors and the children in our program as well as the connections made by our Site Directors with their parents.
The pandemic disrupted all our lives, especially the educational lives of school children. The early report from schools is that our children’s education has suffered during the past year and a half. The ministry of ACTS is needed now more than ever before. We’re working to reopen our sites and add new ones in the coming months. There are some challenges as we try to get to a “new” normal, but there are also some great opportunities for ACTS to grow and expand our work and ministry. I’m looking forward to working with our Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers as we continue to make a difference…one child at a time…one family at a time.
Together in Ministry,
Rev. Dr. Barbara E. Headley
