Welcome to Access County Community Support Services (ACCESS)! ACCESS is the new name of what was formerly known as the Youth & Family Resource Network of Essex County. We’ve rebranded in an attempt to provide more clarity for the community on who we are and what we offer.

ACCESS is an agency for everyone. We offer programs for individuals of all ages, from infants to seniors, ranging from recreational opportunities to leadership development to assistance with housing and homelessness or food security. Our aim is to provide residents of Essex County with access to social services that they might not otherwise be able to receive. Our Board and staff are passionate about supporting all communities in Essex County, and being accessible as a one-stop-shop for assistance. If you aren’t sure where to turn, contact us. Even if we don’t provide the service you require, we will make sure you are connected with the appropriate resources.

Although we have a brand-new look, our history goes back almost 20 years already. We have grown and expanded in those years, and look forward to continuing to meet the needs of Essex County residents for decades more to come. Thanks for checking us out and be sure to visit again for continually updated information on our events, programs and services.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns, we’d love to hear from you.
