Barberton Area Community Ministries (BACM) began in 1997 as a combined community ministry to assist low-income individuals in the Barberton and Norton area. Since then, BACM has grown, providing food assistance and referrals to other programs and services. Funding comes from churches, individuals, foundation & government grants, fundraising events, businesses & community groups.
In 2018, we received donations of food, toiletry & basic necessities from the community valued at over $99,000.
BACM is a proud Network Partner of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. Strategic partnerships with other organizations, allows us to provide low-income households in our area with much needed services. USDA Poster
