Beltsville Adventist Community Center Receives Grant for ADA Compliant Ramp

Updated: Dec 31, 2021


Beltsville Adventist Community Center’s new American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) compliant ramp

Beltsville Adventist Community Center (BACC) received a $10,000 Seed Grant from North American Division Adventist Community Services and $10,000 from the Potomac Conference Corporation in order to build an American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) compliant ramp to provide access to the building. The community center, located behind the Beltsville Seventh-day Adventist Church on Ammendale Road, is staffed by a team of gifted volunteers from both the church and the community and has been serving the local community since 2012. This capital improvement has been high on the priority list and is just the first of many capital improvement projects planned. The ramp provides disabled clients the access to the facility they deserve so they can receive the services they require.

BACC provides Maryland residents access to a Department of Social Services (DSS) Agent, crisis counseling, and mental health counseling. The community center operates a food pantry and through partnerships with county council members from District 1 and District 2, BACC has been positioned to grant mortgage, rental and utility assistance to residents affected by significant financial hardships. On November 23, BACC along with staff members and volunteers from the District 1 Council office will prepare 550 Thanksgiving baskets to be distributed to low income households in District 1, so they will be able to experience the gratitude this season brings.

BACC is a 501-3-c tax deductible charity and maintains the desire to increase its ability to be a force for health and wholeness to the people in this community. You can find more information about the services BACC offer by visiting the website at MYBACC.ORG
