GERMANTOWN AVENUE CRISIS MINISTRY

WE ARE NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS

Marble Surface

About 

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.
