Our mission is to connect at-risk Northwest Philadelphia residents to resources within themselves and the community, that resolve their crises, stabilize their lives and equip them to take the next step(s) toward self-sufficiency.
GACM operates with the support of 2 social workers, an administrative assistant and a host of regular volunteers who donate over 100 hours of service each week. Ad-hoc volunteers provide additional support during the holiday season and for other special activities.

GACM COVID RESPONSE
GACM is essential. We have adapted our operations to provide services during this time.
Help begins with a call to our office. 215-843-2340
While most services can be provided remotely, if needed, the staff is available in our office.
Office assistance is only by appointment. No walk-in service is available.
For all on-site services, GACM COVID procedures must be observed.
This includes temperature check, wearing a mask, and social distancing of 6 feet between yourself and others.
Do not come to GACM if you are sick, have a fever, or are experiencing COVID symptoms
We’re honored to share that GACM has received a PHL COVID-19 Fund grant.
A collaboration between @PhillySJUnited, @PhiladelphiaFoundation, and @cityofphiladelphia, the PHL COVID-19 Fund is providing financial assistance to nonprofits like ours during the #coronavirus crisis.
Thank you to all the contributors for your support during this time.
