ACCESS Housing helps families facing homelessness achieve self-sufficiency and permanent housing through a continuum of care in collaboration with community partners. Founded in 1983 by a group of Adams Coun

Services offered at ACCESS Housing include the Family Shelter Program which provides short-term shelter for up to 90 days for families with children in on-site private apartment units, Home Again Family Support which supports the transition of homeless families into permanent housing and permanent housing at one of the 17 units owned by ACCESS Housing that they rent to low-income families.
