ACT’s mission is to protect, support, educate and empower victims of domestic violence and their children, survivors of sexual assault and human trafficking in Lee, Hendry, and Glades Counties.
Your gift will support our life-saving services, especially our Children’s Program, and allow us to expand our Children’s Program to better meet the ever-increasing need for our services to the children in our community.
Your contributions to our mission are critical to ensuring that every one of them is cared for by our talented and highly trained staff. We could not do this work without you!
Sincerely, Jennifer Benton, COO
