Access: Supports For Living
On January 1, 2015, several agencies in the Hudson Valley including, Occupations Inc., Family Empowerment Council, New Dynamics Corporation, and Stony Ford Foundation, joined together to become Access: Supports For Living. Together they have supported the people of the Hudson Valley for over five decades and today they are evolving to meet the needs of the future. Access: Supports For Living is a valued resource to the people, families, and communities across eight counties in New York and is a highly regarded provider of a wide range of constantly evolving services and programs that serve as many as 10,000 individuals each year. The spirit and initiative of the founding families are honored in a shared commitment to promoting the independence, health, and happiness of every person the agency serves.
They offer a broad range of services and programs for people facing the challenges of disability and mental illness. Their goal is helping people with challenges live the fullest life possible and they believe each of us is entitled to a voice in establishing our own life goals. They are an agency passionate about supporting the families of the Hudson Valley and committed to making a positive difference in our community where we live and work.
As a way of saying "thank you" to the many Access: Supports For Living employees who reside in our community, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing for all employees and their immediate adult family members.
