Housing Now! Launches First Volunteer-Based Home Rehab Project!
Housing Now! is a new program of the Access Community Action Agency that rehabilitates multi-family homes to provide safe and affordable housing to the region's working families. The program uses a combination of local contractors, volunteer labor, in-kind support, and monetary donations on its projects.
Housing Now! Needs volunteers for its very first multi-family home rehabilitation project. We are looking for individual community members, business and organization teams, college students and youth, and more. All volunteers have the option to join the Windham Area Hour Exchange to earn "time dollars" for their Housing Now! volunteer efforts!
You don't have to be skilled in any of the construction or finishing trades to participate. We welcome volunteers with all levels of experience ... from experts to enthusiastic learners. And, if construction isn't your speed, there are numerous other volunteer opportunities associated with the project that don't require you to swing a hammer.

The Pulse 2013: A Community Needs and Assets Assessment
On 3/19/13 the Pulse of the Commuity 2013: A Consolidated Report on the Capacity of Northeast Connecticut to Meet the Needs of its Communities received airtime on WECS radio here in Willimantic, CT!
The Pulse is a needs and assets assessment of Windham and Tolland counties, which is being coordinated by the Access Community Action Agency in collaboration with partner organizations and community members.
To do this well we need your help! Over the next eight months, we will be creating a highly participative, systematic process to produce a 3-part report. For more information on how you can get involved, please visit sites.google.com/site/communitypulse2013/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We look forward to hearing from you!
We would like to thank the individuals, foundations, and corporations who support the Access mission.
