ACCFS Capital Improvement Request - We are thankful for the services that Apostolic Christian Counseling & Family Services (ACCFS) provides to help the hurting, nurture hope, and encourage spiritual growth in the lives of individuals. At this time, ACCFS is in need of assistance to help with some important capital improvements. These improvements include facility safety fencing installation, concrete parking lot repair, information technology enhancements, and landscape improvements. We are estimating the financial need to be $130,000, to cover these capital expenses. This special request is being made so that ACCFS can continue to provide services to our church family without compromising our operating budget. We are thankful to be a part of a church that sees the need and provides support for these services. Donations can be given online at www.accounseling.org/donate - or checks can be placed in the collection boxes, or mailed directly to ACCFS.
