The Actors Fund is a national human services organization that helps everyone—performers and those behind the scenes—who work in performing arts and entertainment, helping more than 13,500 people directly each year, and hundreds of thousands online. Serving professionals in film, theatre, television, music, opera, radio and dance, The Fund’s programs include social services and emergency financial assistance, health care and insurance counseling, housing, and employment and training services. With offices in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, The Actors Fund has—for 131 years—been a safety net for those in need, crisis or transition.
