Norman C. Powers, Jr. known to his family as “Babe” served in the United States Army. He was held as a Prisoner of War after he was captured during the Korean War on 18 May 1951 and was held until his release on 21 August 1953 after the signing of the Armistice and was awarded the Prisoner of War Medal. Family contacted Access Partnership inquiring about a donated hospital bed. They explained that the bed he was provided by the V.A. was older and uncomfortable and they were advised he was not eligible for a new bed. Access Partnership was able to supply “Babe” with a donated hospital bed and patient lift making him more comfortable and easier to care for. He and his family were grateful that this program was available and they were able to receive the equipment free of charge!

Access Partnership is a true partner for the TogoNetwork. Because of their good work, many people in the little West African country now have diabetic supplies, bandages, baby formula and more (even prosthetics).
In a country where there is lots of medical supplies wasted through arbitrary regulations, Access Partnership truly "redistributes wealth"(and health) in a good way.
They are a trusted partner with TogoNetwork.org and save lives around the world and are a wonderful local resource in Hampton Roads for medical items to churches and those that do not have money for simple medical items that can make lives more comfortable.
I'm a client, but my private foundation is also a contributor to this wonderful organization.

I absolutely love this organization! You all have been such a blessing and I would be suffering without you! Laura has been so awesome! I was in so much pain from broken off and abscess teeth. She sent me to the Mission of Mercy to have the teeth taken out and now I have no pain and no more worries about pan in my mouth again. I'm in the Donated Dental Service program finishing the treatment plan for my mouth that I could have otherwise not afforded. I'm on disability, a fixed income and if it's not one thing it's another that keeps you from getting everything you need. Such a blessing. Thank you.

I am so thankful to the Lord for helping me find this organization. Karen Y has been such a great help to me with finding a bed that is suitable for my mom's needs. I highly recommend Access Partnership to anyone who needs help finding the proper equipment. Thank you so very much!

I first became aware of ACCESS Partnership, and became acquainted with Candace, Karen, and staff five years ago while seeking nutritional supplies for a needy client. Since then ACCESS has assisted me with securing walkers, diabetic supplies, a bariatric bed, adult briefs, and a plethora of supplies for my low-income clients. I never feel like I'm bothering them when I call seeking assistance and supplies. ACCESS Partnership is a wonderful organization that seeks to bridge the safety net as well as making the larger community aware of the service needs of others. I'm so glad they're here!

(Donated Dental Service program participant)- I was nervous like I don't know what- but from the first second I walked in the door, it was the best experience. Dr. Danny Howell and staff are just terrific! I got my new teeth on April 30th- just in time for my May 1st birthday. People at church can't get over how good my new teeth look. Thanks Access Partnership for such a great experience- Bless everyone of y'all.

This is a wonderful organization. Access Partnership graciously helped me with some much-needed supplies for my hemiplegic husband after being laid off from my job. As his sole caregiver and former bread winner, this meant so much to me . I encourage everyone to support this worthy organization .

I went through the Donated Dental Service program and I could not have received better treatment from the dentist or your program (coordinator). She seemed to take a personal interest in helping me and seemed very genuine. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! I'm hoping to get dental insurance now to keep my teeth and mouth healthy.

Access Partnership helped me with my dental. They put me through the Donated Dental Service program and if they could- they should wrap them arms around themselves and give themselves a big old hug. I would! What they have done for me is so wonderful. I have been treated like a queen.

Access Partnership - First let me tell you a story.
Hello, My name is Bob. I'm an old guy who had been successful in both my marriage and employment. Raised four wonderful children and retired when I got to be 65. Things were fine until 2010 which was when I came down with a mercer infection in my leg which left me seriously ill and hospitalized for three months. It was a tough and costly time but I did get over it. The following year my wife was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which caused her death, thus I lose my sweetheart of over 50 years. All in all even with the help of our health insurance I was now going to be living a life style on the meager income I had coming in from my social security. I had gotten by and been living a nice life however, some things were no longer attended to like my teeth, they were in pretty bad condition and I was not financially able to do anything about it. I had heard about Access Partnership, a volunteer group of local ladies working with people like myself in need of dental work but not able to afford it. It was just over a year ago that I was notified by one of the volunteers that that there was going to be a Mission of Mercy dental work day at the school on rt 17 Yorktown that weekend and that I should attend. When I got there I was amazed to find hundreds of people seeking dental work and a dozen or more dentists all volunteers doing a great job of fillings and extractions. I spoke to one of the volunteer girls about the extensive work I needed and was told that would be more then what they were attempting to work on that day. I stayed for a while in awe of what was going on, hundreds of people getting needed dental work done who could not otherwise afford it. What a wonderful program. The girls had not forgotten me as I got a call weeks later from Laura with their Donated Dental Service Program to let me know I was accepted to have dental work done by one of their volunteer dentists. I'm sure all the dentists in this program are terrific people and the one they picked for me was just great. During my time in his dental chair I could not have been treated any better then if I was paying for the service. I am now wearing my dentures and smiling a lot more showing my nice new teeth.
Thank You Very Much Access Partnership
Sincerely
Bob

I heard about Access Partnership and their Donated Dental Program from a friend of mine, and was so grateful when I contacted them, that they were able to help me get the dental work done that had to be taken care of so I could have open heart surgery. My coordinator; Laura was very professional and seemed to care about what she does. I think that she definitely enjoys helping others. I have also made arrangements to continue to see the dentist she sent me to. Thank you Laura!

I am a Social Worker and Patient Advocate for cancer patients in the local area and I have had great success with Access Partnership in their ability to assist my uninsured patient with necessary medical supplies he could not afford---from trach cleaning kits to Gevity for his nutrition. Way to not waste items and give them to those in need in our local community. They are responsive and on top of it. Thanks! I will keep coming back.

I'm the victim of a home invasion. I got shot in the side and stomach and have a colostomy now. This happened 2 years ago- at the time I had no insurance and just found out it will be exactly 3 years before I even get a court hearing to decide if I get disability or not. I can't walk across the room without getting winded- much less work like I was before. Access Partnership are the only folks that have been helping me out. They call me up whenever they have colostomy supplies that will fit me, got me a cane and soon will have a rollator, too. Bless y'all. Thank you so much for what you do.

Karen and Candie,
Thank you so much for your assistance with diabetic supplies! My member was out of test strips, recently discharged from the hospital and has a high-risk pregnancy. Your assistance greatly impacts her and her baby's health.
