Act (Advocates for Community Transformation) is a rapidly growing non-profit justice organization with a new model of ministry that uses the legal system to empower inner- city residents to fight crime on their streets while sharing with them the hope of the gospel. Act’s vision is to see safe neighborhoods, where crime is no longer tolerated and dignity and hope are restored. Act currently serves multiple neighborhoods in Dallas, Texas and is positioned for expansion. The organization operates as a 501c3 with 30+ full-time employees and a $4.85 million annual budget.
