Our Mission to Serve

Serving as the heart of service in Gordon County, we strive to provide volunteer opportunities that offer a wide variety of emergency resources to our neighbors in need.

The Voluntary Action Center was founded in 1971 by a group of caring individuals concerned with the welfare of low income individuals and families.  Our legal founding name is Hand-Up Inc but we have operated as the Voluntary Action Center and are better known as the VAC.  Since our formation we have worked to ensure the men, women, and children living in our community are supported with food and shelter programs.  Over the years our service has changed but we have continued to stay focused on hunger and homelessness.  Every program we provide is always free to our clients.  To fund our programs we depend on the support of our donors who make our programs and services possible.  

Donations made to the Voluntary Action Center help support our programs which include:

  • Community Kitchen which serves hot meals Monday-Friday to anyone who is hungry.
  • Food Pantry which provides non-perishable and fresh food resources once every 30 days.
  • Bridge Homeless Outreach which provides immediate shelter to homeless families.
  • Laundry/Shower Program which allows individuals to utilize our services at no cost
  • Training programs which provide budgeting and money management classes.
  • Rent/Mortgage assistance is provided to prevent eviction.
  • Utilitiy assistance is provided to prevent disconnect of services.
  • Clothing and household assistance.
  • Christmas toys and clothing for children.
  • Christmas meal for children and seniors.
