Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To help homeless families gain independence, self-sufficiency, and permanent housing through a continuum of care and in collaboration with community partners.
Our programsare designed to respond to the basic human need for shelter, food and clothing. We apply a comprehensive, holistic and culturally responsive approach that empowers families to regain control of their lives through the following programs:
Family Shelter Program. Short-term shelter is provided for families for up to 90 days in private apartment units that support the privacy and normalcy that families need to regain thier independance. Emergency shelter is provided in collaboration with local churches and hotels to assure the immediate safety of families. Program services also include case management, food, clothing, household furnishings and transportation assistance.
Home Again Family Support Program. Program services strive to prevent homelessness and to support the transition of homeless families into permanent housing. Eligible families receive case management and financial assistance for housing, medical, education, utility and transportation expenses.
ACCESS Housing also owns 27 units of housing for low-income families and plans to acquire additional units over the next ten years.
Steps 2 Success Self-sufficiency Program. Program services support family self-sufficiency. Services include GED Preparation, Adult Basic Education (pre GED) and life skills training. GED Prep classes are offered at 2 locations (ACCESS Housing and 3CE)
