Frame Our Future

Frame our future

During an annual property inspection of our emergency shelter locations, damage to many of the windows was discovered.  After talking with contractors, we learned that the windows were installed incorrectly by the previous owners.  Due to the improper installation, many of our windows have dry rot, causing them to be unsafe and non functioning, and eventually all of the windows will need replaced to prevent further damage to the property. 

This project has two phases.  The first phase is geared towards the most immediate repairs needed - replacing the windows that currently have damage, to allow for clients to be secure and safe over the winter.  Phase two, starting in the Spring of 2020, is focused on replacing the remaining windows and the sliding doors to prevent future damage.

Currently, our emergency shelter has provided 3,569 nights of shelter to 88 survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other violent crimes in 2019.

If you are interested in helping ACCESS continue to provide safe sheltering to survivors of violence, please consider donating to this campaign.  The donation link is located at the top right corner of this page.

Thank you for your continued support.
