Description & History

 Community Access assists people with psychiatric disabilities in making the transition from shelters and institutions to independent living.  We provide safe, affordable housing and support services, and we advocate for the rights of people to live without fear or stigma.

 

Our work demonstrates that people with psychiatric disabilities can lead productive, dignified, and valued lives in the community:

  • We believe that people who have experienced homelessness, poverty, social isolation, and prejudice should have access to housing, healing, and recovery opportunities.
  • We are committed to eliminating discrimination that restricts opportunities for people with disabilities to live and work in the community
  • We believe that people with psychiatric disabilities should have a voice for promoting social justice and positive change within the mental health community.
