It is the mission of ACCESS to facilitate the grieving process of people who have been affected by or involved in air disaster-related tragedies by partnering those who have survived or lost loved ones in air disasters with professionally trained volunteers who have experienced similar tragedies in years past.
ACCESS is a non-profit, non-denominational, non-political organization available for ongoing, long-term grief support. We work with the grieving from the minute a plane goes down, for as long they need help to alleviate their emotional devastation. In addition to emotional support, ACCESS provides information about other organizations and their roles in the aftermath of a crash, helping those in crisis become aware of the resources available to them.
Through the ACCESS support system and referral services, we help individuals to overcome the feelings of hopelessness, isolation, despair, and confusion that often follow an air disaster. We help minimize the risk of post-traumatic stress symptoms, long-term depression, family difficulties or an inability to function socially or at work. Our goal is to help the bereaved gain renewed strength, hope, and purpose” enabling them to cope with the present and prepare for the future. Request Bereavement Care
