Q&A with Sue
Q: Why is AccessCNY’s mission important to you?
A: “I have known some of our participants for over three decades and have been able to watch them grow and achieve their goals. I believe the people we provide services to deserve the same opportunities that we all are given and I think AccessCNY staff do an amazing job providing those opportunities, providing the highest quality services, and treating people with dignity and respect.”
