Project Access is There

Steve left his position in a local factory to pursue an independent business. Because his health deteriorated, he needed hip replacement surgery to rejoin the workforce. Project Access was there.

During a 6-month period between jobs, Mary needed help managing her treatment for Crohn's disease. Project Access was there.

Jim's disease, Conjestive Heart Failure, took an unexpected turn and he needed open heart surgery. Project Access was there.

Fran spent months managing her recurring asthma with trips to the Emergency Room and Urgent Care centers. She needed specialty care to design a treatment plan and stabilize her health. She in now employed at a local non-profit where she is giving back to the community because Project Access was there.
