ACCESS provides food, housing, warmth and other essential services to Jackson County's low-income children, families, seniors and people with disabilities. As the Community Action Agency of Jackson County, ACCESS has been helping Jackson County residents break the cycle of poverty since 1976. With a focus on education, ACCESS helps people through economic crisis by guiding them through changes in habits to help them become self-sustaining. ACCESS currently serves local residents through 15 programs designed to address problems from one-time emergencies to longer-term issues.
Ashland Emergency Food Bank provides food, free of charge, to residents of Ashland, Talent and surrounding rural communities who would otherwise go hungry. AEFB customers include the unemployed, under-employed, disabled, working poor, students, seniors and homeless. Twenty-five percent of those served are children under the age of 18. AEFB also distributes nonperishable food items to several organizations that offer prepared meals, or that serve a specific niche of people in need. These groups include Uncle Foods Diner, St. Vincent de Paul, and the Catalyst and Maslow Programs at Ashland High School. In 2015, Ashland Emergency Food Bank served an average of 600 households (approximately 1,500 children and adults) every month. Each family received enough food to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for 2-3 days.
We believe the inclusion of diverse people, ideas, cultures and traditions enriches both our insights into the work we present on stage and our relationships with each other. We are committed to diversity in all areas of our work and in our audiences.
