I am thankful for Access Partnership because...it is true to its mission. This is no small thing. Access Partnership's leadership and administrative support team truly have a purpose and understand that purpose. The objectives for the organization are clear and in alignment with the mission. Working towards and accomplishing these measurable objectives means that its mission is living and breathing. On a weekly basis, evident are the connections among the proverbial dots connecting the actions of Access Partnership's team and needs being met in our communities. Access Partnership makes a difference and that difference is clear. Access Partnership as an organization is professionally led with a compassion for those they are serving and a true, heartfelt belief in their mission. Access Partnership has a modest, down-to-earth demeanor and this is a reflection of the leadership. In these days where many non-profits are slick in marketing their accomplishments one must be carful about being oversold. Access Partnership is about the substance of facilitating access and that is where they focus their resources and energy; image and marketing is secondary to the mission. In one word, I am thankful because Access Partnership is genuine.

Access Partnership is such a great resource! Anytime I have an uninsured, low income client who needs health care services, I can count on this organization to provide guidance & a comprehensive list of community resources. I really appreciate their programs.

Thankful to be working with this wonderful collaboration with a mission to improve access to health care. So many people are in need of services but don't have the financial means to obtain the care they need. Those that are helped are so grateful! I hope to continue with Access Partnership for years to come.

Thank you on behalf of the patients we have referred to you. They have suffered for a long time and feel pretty hopeless about getting health care. Thank you for all your organization does!

I attended a free screening for prostate cancer. Brothers, father, and grandfather had prostate cancer. I was fearful of being diagnosed with no income or health insurance. I don't know how I could be cared for without this program.

Thank you so much! I am so thankful for this CPAP machine. I have been in the ER 4 times because of my sleep apnea. I was diagnosed in February and I missed my chance to get a donated CPAP machine in June because I was out of town so when you called today, I was so grateful and came right over. I am getting ready to go on a conference for work so this will be great to have my CPAP machine.

I am blessed to be both a employee as well as a client served with Access Partnership. I am a full time student studying to work in the healthcare field and a single mother. I work part time after school ehlping with the Community Access to Care Program, and am really enjoying it so far! I started with Candie, Heather and Carrie in the middle of July and they all have been wonderful bosses/coworkers/mentors to me, and have really opened my eyes to giving back to the community. And in fact, when I told Candie that I had not seen a dentist in over a decade she helped me get an appointment at the ODU School of Dental Hygiene so that I could get my teeth cleaned and x-rayed. During my first week with this organization I was already being included to attend meetings and a webinar given by the Virginia Department of Social Services. After attending the webinar, I used the information I learned and applied for assistance online (Common Help). It feels great to make a difference in someone's life and give back to the Hampton Roads Community. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!

Thank you all so much for being there when I needed you. I now have Medicare now that I turned 65 so I no longer need the Community Access to Care Program. But, I don't know if not for the Good Lord and Access Partnership, I don't know what I would have done about getting access to healthcare and my medications and the clinic helping me. Thank you all so very much!

Access Partnership has really been beneficial. It has been financially hard to pay out of pocket for medical expenses. Access Partnership helps the community, has a great website, and provides donated medical supplies and equipment to the community. The Community Access to Care Program is a great program and I am very grateful for it.

You all are a wonderful organization. Keep it up! I am able to pick up donated medical supplies from you such as nutrition supplements and give them to someone in need. I wish I had known about your organization when my father was still alive because when he was ailing he could have benefited from using some of the donated medical supplies and equipment.

This wheelchair will help move my Mom around the house and up so she does not get bed sores. The wheelchair will also help to get my Mom to her doctor's appointments.

This program is helping me meet my health care needs until I return to full-time employment that offers me medical benefits and/or health insurance.

Physicians for Peace partners with Access Partnership when we are offered donations of equipment and supplies that we cannot use to support our mission. Access Partnership connects patients in need with equipment and supplies in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Hampton, Richmond and even Washington, DC. By working together not only are we able to connect people with equipment and supplies that they need to help with their medical needs but we also keep these supplies and equipment out of our landfills. Hopefully Access Partnership will continue to grow and help many more of our friends and neighbors in the future.

I merely wish to commend you for the endless hours of dedication towards helping people whom may not yet have even met you.
To do what you do consistently commands selflessness and a high degree of dedication from an era ago when people had and showed pride in a job really well done .
I have never met you or subscribed to any of the merchandise or services available. I am retired and often wonder what I could possibly do to help others in a significant way and thereby making a favorable difference in someone's life.
I'm sure you understand how even a little help at the most needed time can possibly inspire the recipient to think about whatever they could do to pay the blessing forward.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my correspondence and please feel welcome to contact me perhaps should you come across any ideas which might allow me to better help others, even in various ways.

I came and picked up supplies from your office on Thursday June 28th. I just want to applaud your kind office staff and their general want to go the extra mile to help those in need. The supplies that I obtained were of great need and the excitement of those we were able to help were insurmountable. I am truly grateful that you have facilitated a place were we can give and/or receive supplies and equipment for those in need.

Thank you again for your giving spirit,
