WATERBURY, Conn. - Oct. 4, 2017 - PRLog -- Acts 4 Ministry, Inc. in Waterbury, CT was awarded $1,200 from the Archbishop's Annual Appeal through its Vicariate Outreach Program which is celebrating its 21st year. The program was initiated in 1997 to offer leadership support to local organizations whose missions are consistent with the mission of the Catholic Church to extend help to people in need.

The non-profit organization's executive director, Sarah Elizabeth Carabetta stated, "This welcomed funding will help Acts 4 Ministry meet growing demands of our families in need throughout the Greater Waterbury area. Each year our not-for-profit organization receives a steady stream of requests for furniture for local area people-in-need. In one week alone, we are known to receive 60 new requests."

The mission of Acts 4 Ministry is to help individuals and families in distress from losing their homes due to fire, flood, domestic abuse and/or financial distress by providing them with new and reusable items. At no charge, those individuals and families can visit Acts 4 Ministry's Thomaston Avenue retail shop to personally select clothing, dishes, glassware, housewares, and other items to meet their daily basic needs. Community members in need of furniture are asked to provide a $50 delivery fee or complete 10 hours of volunteer work at Acts 4 Ministry to receive needed donations.

"Acts 4 Ministry is dedicated to building relationships with people while providing them with the basics of daily living needs. To achieve this, we partner with churches, social service agencies, and public schools to help identify and serve people with these needs regardless of their faith, race, creed, or national origin, or their willingness to participate in religious activities."

Since 1981, the Archbishop's Annual Appeal has assisted tens of thousands of individuals, regardless of race, religion or color, across the Archdiocese of Hartford with health care, education, housing, emergency expenses, and numerous additional areas.

It is through the Archbishop's Annual Appeal Vicariate Outreach Program begun in 1997, and the generosity of donors statewide and within the greater Waterbury community, that the Appeal can assist a wide variety of such community-based charitable organizations throughout Hartford, New Haven and Litchfield Counties. Each year, pastors and administrators throughout the Archdiocese are asked to recommend charities that should be supported, and Acts 4 Ministry Inc. was once again selected as a funding recipient.
