Our vision

Celebrating Abilities

Access Inc. was founded 30 years ago, after a group of parents of children with disabilities felt that their needs were not being met, specifically in the Jewish community and at the post-school stage.

Access Inc. was developed as an extended curriculum offering essential life skills, promoting happiness, health and well-being, and removing the societal barriers often faced by people with disabilities. 

The Access Inc. vision is for full inclusion of people with special needs as valued and contributing members of our community.
