DUMFRIES, VA, July 5, 2022 – ACTS (Action in Community Through Service) of Greater Prince William County announces the departure of our esteemed Chief Executive Officer, Steve Liga. Steve came to ACTS almost eight years ago in a time of great transition for the non-profit organization, whose mission is to foster hope, provide relief, and promote self-sufficiency for our area neighbors in crisis.
During his tenure as CEO, Steve has been responsible for restructuring the organization to meet a constantly-shifting client base, expanding the reach and impact of ACTS’ programming for the homeless and hungry of our county, as well as those suffering sexual assault and domestic abuse. Importantly, Steve worked tirelessly to expand ACTS’ donor base and obtain governmental funding and private grants to support critical programming, increasing ACTS budget by 75% during his tenure. His outreach efforts have included key relationships with multiple faith-based organizations and community groups, the founding of the Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William, regular appearances with local news outlets and the impressive expansion of ACTS’ social media profile.
Steve Liga has accepted directorship of The Potomac Health Foundation, to begin August 1, 2022. While the ACTS family are truly sad to lose his leadership, it is grateful for the reputation he built and solid financial footing on which he leaves ACTS – he will no doubt bring his unmatched skills to his new position while remaining a valuable partner for the ACTS organization.
ACTS has hired Interim CEO, David Strand, to overlap with Steve in his remaining weeks, and to serve as director for an approximate six-month period. In addition to his long career as a Commander in the US Air Force and government contractor, Dave was recently President of the ACTS Board of Directors and has volunteered in nearly every aspect of ACTS’ programming. The ACTS Board of Directors will engage a firm to conduct a national search for our next Chief Executive Officer.
ACTS has locations from Triangle to Manassas to meet individuals’ and families’ needs, whether they are physical necessities such as food and shelter or deep mental and emotional needs stemming from the trauma of domestic violence, sexual assault, or suicide. ACTS fosters hope, provides relief and promotes self-sufficiency for our Prince William area neighbors in crisis. For more information, visit ACTS at www.actspwc.org and on Facebook at #actspwc.
