We’re Building Community in Jackson County
ACCESS is the Community Action Agency of Jackson County, helping residents break the cycle of poverty since 1976. Along with our partners, donors, staff and volunteers, we’re able to serve 1 in 3 local residents — providing much-needed means for essential food, warmth, and shelter.
Who We Are
We’re helping create opportunities for all people in Jackson County to thrive. Our essential services address the needs of low-income individuals, families, seniors, Veterans, and people with disabilities.
Each year, ACCESS provides life changing support to tens of thousands of people locally. See how we’re addressing the staggering needs of our neighbors when it comes to housing, food, and utility assistance.
All that we are able to do locally is made possible through our partnerships, volunteers, donors, and hard work of our dedicated board and staff. Meet the ACCESS leadership team.
We welcome people to our team who embrace our guiding principles of respect, integrity, empathy, and inclusion. If you want to do amazing work in the community, we hope you’ll join us!
