The Alliance of Concerned Men is a 501©(3) non-profit organization which promotes independence and personal survival skills for youth who come from dysfunctional homes and are in desperate need of learning how to bridge the gap between survival on the streets and existence on marginal lifestyles.  Since 1991, ACM has been providing community services to families throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

The Alliance of Concerned Men has dedicated itself to transforming lives and communities. Its founders bring authenticity to this vision because they have lived and worked in conflict-prone environments.

ACM’s program is unique in that it is  the only one in the country that deals directly with the missing, yet common and essential, element in an “at-risk” youth’s life-- the incarcerated parent. They provide guidance and interventions to build positive life skills through one-on-one counseling, programs, group sessions, and community outreach.
