Need Help? Here’s What ACTC Can Do


  • Groceries every two weeks for anyone living in our service area (scroll down for map and zip code listing)
  • Lunches every weekday for people who are homeless

Food can be picked up Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at 116 W. Pennsylvania Avenue in downtown Towson. And Wednesdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7 p.m. for groceries only.


Emergency Financial Help*

  • Money toward rent/mortgage for those facing eviction**
  • Money toward heating/electric bills for those facing service cut-off**
  • Gas vouchers or MTA tokens/passes to get to doctor’s appointments or for job hunting
  • Help with paying for prescription medications

Our financial assistance volunteers work on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and we ask for patience as they have many requests for assistance and are working as fast as they can. We are so grateful for the work they can accomplish as this work can be very difficult.

* Financial help is available only for people living in our service area zip codes, highlighted below (click the map for larger view).
