Austin Coming Together (ACT) is a network of community leaders, non-profit organizations, churches, businesses, and public agencies that share a common vision for a thriving Austin community.
Our mission is to establish a comprehensive community development system with the capacity to improve the quality of life for Austin residents.
For most jobseekers in challenged communities, lack of employment opportunities is a reality they face on a daily basis, as they wait to be placed in a low skill or low wage job at their local employment center. While these jobs can greatly help alleviate an individual's immediate economic needs and circumstances, in many cases this stability is short lived. Community members need greater support in attaining a career to achieve longlived sustainability.
