Front Line Fund
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, AccessCNY promised that the safety of our participants and staff would always be the agency’s top priority. Keeping this promise to the community has required heavy investment into areas such as telehealth technologies, personal protective equipment and additional staffing.
Community support has always been essential to fulfilling AccessCNY’s mission, but is more important than ever in the face of COVID-19. You can brighten a participant’s day by sending a message or photo or making a financial gift.
No matter the size, your donation to the Front Line Fund, will help AccessCNY continue to provide life-changing services to Central New Yorkers with developmental disabilities and mental health diagnoses.
For $25 you can send a care package to someone supported by AccessCNY. In this time of social distancing, those supported in AccessCNY housing have been home for months on end. Bring a little sunshine to their lives with a care package of goodies and activities!
AccessCNY services are often time intimate, involving personal care and face to face contact. During this pandemic the safety and security of those we serve and our staff is paramount. Your $50 gift will help us purchase masks, cleaning supplies, thermometers and more as we prepare for a phased reopening.
During this pandemic, AccessCNY continues to support mental health participants, children in our preschool program and foster children through our CASA program. Many of these families struggle with meeting basic needs. For $100, you can adopt a child/family and help put food on their table.
For $250, you can one of the twenty+ houses operated by AccessCNY. Your support will allow us to bring meals, good times and more to homes operated by AccessCNY. These homes are like family for both those who live there and the staff who support them. You’ll not only be supporting people with disabilities, but the essential staff they’re relying on.
In this time of social distancing, many AccessCNY services have gone mobile. With your $500 gift AccessCNY can invest in technology that will help us deliver teletherapy in our clinic and preschool and facilitate virtual skill building in our community habilitation program.
