The Actors Fund and Career Transition For Dancers merged their programs and services to dancers and the dance community this year. The merger integrated the services of CTFD, which assists dancers during and post-career with career planning and transition, into the ongoing programs of The Actors Fund, a human services organization with services that help everyone who works in entertainment and the performing arts.

The Actors Fund is a national human services organization that helps everyone-performers and those behind the scenes-who works in performing arts and entertainment. 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 is a safety net for those in need, crisis or transition. Visit www.actorsfund.org.
