Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support (ACCESS)

Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support, ACCESS, is a nonprofit dedicated to fostering a community founded in respect and equality that is free from violence, abuse, and power imbalances by addressing the roots and impact of domestic and sexual violence through services that enhance safety, empower survivors and promote understanding and social justice within our community. One of their agency wide goals is to eliminate the need for victims of violence to leave their communities in order to seek safety by providing local emergency housing, advocacy, safety planning, and support to survivors of violence. ACCESS serves victims of sexual and domestic abuse, stalking, harassment, human trafficking, survivors of homicide (those who lose a loved one), and other violent crimes. They serve victims of all ages, races, abilities, genders, or backgrounds in Tama, Marshall, Story, Boone, and Greene counties. Donations will be used to support advocacy and services for survivors of violence. Some examples of the kinds of efforts your funds might support are $15.00 would provide a workbook to help a homicide survivor process grief and commemorate a loved one, $90.00 provides a night of safe housing such as a short hotel stay for a survivor fleeing violence and $250.00 supports services such as 3 hours of crisis response and support for a survivor through a medical exam.
