Because health is important

The ACFC is here
to help you manage
your work & family life.

The ACFC is a joint CWA and Verizon work/life committee serving the CWA-represented employees in the Mid-Atlantic region. We think diligently about how to help you with your work, life, and family responsibilities. We accomplish this by providing resources, securing programs and offering toolkits with the bargained for money we recieve.

The ACFC includes members from management and the union who work together to develop resources that will help you manage your day-to-day responsibilities.

Our Mission

Since 1986, the ACFC has been responsible for researching, developing, evaluating, funding, monitoring, deploying, and communicating programs and initiatives for community development programs to increase and expand family care services and educational programs in the communities where employees reside or work and much more.
