Celebrating the activity of God in our midst, the mission of Access is to be a faith-based leader in linking congregational, individual, and community resources to eliminate hunger and reduce the impact of poverty in Kent County. We provide a place for the community to act--for those with resources and talents to interact and problem-solve with the big issues of poverty and people in need. Our services fall under three initiatives: Hunger Response, Congregation Connections, and Poverty Education.
