Anne Arundel Connecting Together, ACT, is bringing the "Turnaround Movement" to the countydd. The Turnaround Movement, created and pioneered with great success in Baltimore as "Turnaround Tuesday" ( is a low threshold process that literally turns around the lives of returning citizens, un- and underemployed people by enabling them to get and hold living-wage jobs. To date, it has placed over 1,000 people, 80% of whom stay employed for the long term. But more than just jobs, TAT means brokenness healed and hope restored 

ACT has forged a partnership with "Turnaround Tuesday" in Baltimore, Maryland Reentry Resource Center and Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center and has negotiated with the County for $1.3 million to kick off "Turnaround Thursday" in Annapolis. County Executive Pittman and ACT will jointly announce the approval of this proposal on December 1 at Asbury UMC, 87 West Street in Annapolis beginning at 6:00 pm. Join ACT and its partners in celebrating this important victory -- either in person or on Zoom.
