Due to the ever-increasing threat of the COVID-19 virus, Access II is taking precautions to keep staff, consumers and the public safe.  Both Access II offices are closed to the public until 4-25-20. Team Members will be taking temperatures as they enter the building and logging them. We are doing our part to educate the community and assist in slowing down the spread of this virus. Access II’s staff will continue to be working to meet the needs that you may have in your homes.

Anyone needing assistance or just needing to talk because they have questions may call the office at 1-888-663-2423 or 1-660-663-2423.

This is definitely something we have never seen in our lifetime. However, we can conquer this together! Please practice kindness. Check on your neighbors, friends and family. Support one another with new ways of socializing from a distance via the internet or phone.

Here is current information on our programs:
