AND DID YOU KNOW...
If you are unemployed and/or living in a shelter, a cell phone is much more than a modern convenience...it’s a life line. For people with no income and no other means of support, ACT in Faith is the sole resource to keep them on the communication grid. So far in 2016, we have provided phone support for 21 people — helping them stay in contact with potential employers, potential landlords, case workers, doctors etc..
In addition, we assist those who qualify with the application process for free wireless service through providers who have such plans for folks with no or low-income.
As little as a $25 phone card can change a person’s life.
