Access is a private not-for-profit agency (501c3) that was incorporated in 1987 to provide a variety of services to individuals who have disabilities. Crisis Respite Services provide short-term care and crisis intervention in the home of a person with developmental disabilities receiving care or services.
Our mission is to provide care and to support children and adults in their right to lead dignified, independent lives in the community
The person must be on a Developmental Disabilities waiver and live at home to qualify for services.
This service enables the person to continue living at home when their caregiver is having a temporary crisis by providing the caregiver with needed support and resources.
Crisis Respite Services include in-home short-term care and crisis intervention through agencies licensed by the Department of Human Services.
Access currently has over 170 employees providing both professional case management and direct care to adults and children who live in the area.
