Adults with Disabilities ACCESS


The ACCESS program promotes growth and life enrichment for people with disabilities through cooperative community efforts, while allowing individuals to participate as fully and independently as possible in all Community Education and Recreation programs, activities and events. 

ACCESS aims to give individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in social, educational, recreational and healthy activities throughout the community. 

ACCESS will continue to offer quality educational classes for adults with disabilities and will advertise these classes through a direct mailing. If you wish to receive a direct mailing that contains ACCESS class offerings, please contact ACCESS Coordinator Michelle Sorenson at (507) 387-5501.
