COVID - 19
A Message From…
Deborah Venditti, Executive Director
Over 65 years ago, accessAbilities began serving children and adults faced with life-long challenges. Today, we face a different challenge…and we face it with the same mission to help and support those in need.
accessAbilities is committed to the health, safety and well-being of those we serve, our staff and the community. Please know that the Agency is continually adapting to direction from state and national officials as updates are received.
We are dedicated to continuing to serve by providing continuity of care related to the identified “life-sustaining” services. These are challenging times for our Nation, but together we can persevere during these unprecedented times.
On behalf of accessAbilities, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to our participants, families, staff, therapist and supporters for their patience and understanding during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
