ABC employees have an internal organization called Anteater Advocates. Our staff volunteers once each month to work CCA the local food pantry. ABC also hosts an annual food drive in the fall. Additionally, each year at our Christmas party, ABC employees bring toys to the party to donate to underprivileged children. We donate services to over 160 local organizations including Child Advocacy Centers, Mission Arlington, The Stewpot, Volunteers of America (part of the Salvation Army), Habitat for Humanity, AIDS Service Homes of Dallas, and many others. These organizations know that they can count on ABC to service those homes at no charge to the families. We also sponsor events such as a fundraising bicycle ride for the Center for Missing and Exploited Children as well as the "Be the Match Run/Walk". Our stated goal for Anteater Advocates is to grow the program to the point that the value of the donation is a full 10% of our annual revenue. At ABC, we feel that giving back to our community is being a good steward of the blessings we have been given and we know that working these events together builds memories and bonds that transcend those of just the normal working relationship.

Christian Community Action (CCA)
For more than 40 years, Christian Community Action (CCA) has been healing, feeding, and educating families in need throughout Collin, Dallas, Denton, Tarrant and Wise counties. What started as a Bible study group of seven people in 1973 has grown into an organization of over 150 staff members, and more than 2,500 volunteers. Headquartered in Lewisville, CCA is one of the largest private nonprofits in North Texas, providing more than 10,000 individual services each year. Through careful case management, CCA’s holistic approach from rescue to transition helps families in need achieve self-sufficiency by offering a “hand-up” instead of a hand-out.
When Mission Arlington® began in August of 1986, the idea was to help people find their way back into church. We subsequently discovered that many people felt disconnected from the church in general. It’s not that churches weren’t friendly or inviting, but that there seemed to be some a barrier in the minds and hearts of people, making it difficult for them to connect. We decided then that if people couldn’t come to the church, for whatever reason, we would take the church to them. Today people of all ages gather each week to hear the Bible taught in multiple languages in 349 locations in Arlington and the larger Dallas/Fort Worth region. We meet in neighborhood homes, apartment club houses, mobile home parks and in any other location where people can gather together to hear God’s Word.
