A Call To Care: Reaching out to those in need with God’s love and provision

Loch Raven Presbyterian Church became a member of the Assistance Center of Towson Churches (ACTC) in 2007. http://actconline.info/ ACTC is a community organization, opened in 1985, consisting of some 40+ churches that joined together to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of people coming to local churches and requesting help.  It provides emergency assistance in the areas of food, shelter, clothing, medicine, transportation, fuel/utilities, transient help, toiletries, and referrals to people living in an area bounded by zip codes 21210, 21212 and 21239 on the south, west to Falls Rd., east to include all of 21234 and north to the PA state line.

A Committee of our Board of Deacons administers this Community Service.
