OCTOBER CHANGE FOR COMMUNITY Recipient:
ACCESS Assault Care Center
Their fundraising campaign, called Frame Our Future, is to replace and repair windows and a sliding-glass door that were incorrectly installed, causing rot and other damage to our emergency shelter. The damage became apparent during an inspection. The fundraising campaign will help to not only fix the issue, but prevent future damage from taking place.
ACCESS’ mission is to address the roots and impact of domestic/sexual violence, stalking, harassment and other violent crimes, through services that enhance safety, empower survivors, and promote understanding and social justice within the community.
