At ACCESS, we believe in the power of addressing the cause of an issue, especially one as serious as hunger. Unlike in many other countries, the cause of hunger in the United States is not the lack of food available.
It is the lack of job opportunities and affordable housing. Many of the women who arrive at ACCESS are struggling to find work and without a steady income, they have a difficult time sustaining housing and providing for themselves and their family.
The issue of hunger needs to be addressed comprehensively. At ACCESS we look at the many factors contributing to a person’s hunger and we try to affect each of those factors in a positive way.
Big or small, every donation to ACCESS and the homeless women and children it serves will be greatly appreciated.
