Brother’s Keeper Fund
Investing in people’s lives with practical, biblically-based counseling services.
We have created the Brother’s Keeper Fund as a way to provide supplementary funding for counseling and related services to those who need financial assistance. All donations to the Brother’s Keeper Fund are used to pay for counseling for clients who cannot pay the full rate.
“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:16-18

Why was the Brother's Keeper Fund created?
Two of the main reasons that people don’t receive the help they need are embarrassment and financial concerns. Unfortunately, these reasons cause people to delay getting help or to avoid seeking help at all. At ACCFS, we are doing our best to reduce the barriers to people getting assistance!
Think about the benefits of investing in:
- Helping individuals overcome the darkness of depression and the distress of anxiety.
- Helping people work through the impact of abuse and trauma.
- Helping couples grow and maintain their marriages to ensure they are providing godly, healthy modeling to their children.
- Helping engaged couples get their marriages off to a great start.
- Helping parents learn how to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
- Helping couples in crisis get back to a solid footing, avoiding the heartaches of divorce.
- Helping people learn life skills necessary to cope with and overcome their situations.
- Helping individuals break free from the bonds of addiction.
- Helping teens and young adults who have lost their way to get their lives back on track.

Who receives the proceeds from the Brother's Keeper Fund?
In addition to serving the members and friends of the Apostolic Christian Church, ACCFS assists those not affiliated with the church as resources allow. We desire to be a helpful light and witness to everyone who passes through our doors.
Does ACCFS charge for counseling?
Yes. We believe that it is important for clients to cover whatever portion of their counseling costs that they can. ACCFS uses a sliding fee scale based on a client’s ability to pay. No one is refused services because of inability to pay. However, on average, fees collected from clients cover only 25 percent of the total costs to provide counseling. Donating to the Brother’s Keeper Fund allows ACCFS to continue to provide these much-needed services to all clients regardless of their financial situation.
