Mission

Family ACCESS is a community-based non-profit organization that empowers and strengthens families through a set of four integrated programs: The Family ACCESS Early Learning Center, Family ACCESS Early Literacy Services, Family ACCESS Counseling and Consultation Services, and CAP Child Assault Prevention, a program of Family ACCESS. For over 100 years, the organization has served thousands of families, regardless of their economic status, from Newton and neighboring towns. The word ACCESS is an acronym of the phrase “A Center for Comprehensive Education and Support Services”, a phrase that clearly defines the organization’s work in the community. Formerly known as Newton Community Service Center, our new name, specifically the word ACCESS, describes the impact of that work.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Early Learning Center

Providing high-quality, early childhood education and child care requires skill, commitment to excellence and experience. Family ACCESS offers safe, nurturing child care to help children grow and learn. It is our desire to promote the social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of each child in accordance with his/her individual needs and abilities. At all times, differences in rates of maturity, interest and personality are respected. Our teachers and independent licensed providers are caring professionals; many of whom have worked in our child care program for 10 years or more.

Population(s) Served

Our family counseling, education and support programs prevent or remedy some of the most serious problems faced by children, teens, and families and are not available elsewhere in the community. These include: Family therapy, addressing a wide variety of counseling issues focused around the needs of children and their families. Parenting education and support through workshops and individual counseling. A home-based early literacy program that provides supports and modeling to help parents strengthen their children's reading and communication skills. Our staff is highly effective at serving families with teen or immigrant parents. Child assault prevention education offers training to help children avoid possibly abusive situations. We also offer parent and community group training on how to recognize abuse and seek help.

Population(s) Served

Early Literacy Services (ELS) offers low to moderate income and dual-language families home-based and community programs promoting literacy and interactive play. Active in more than 10 communities, ELS improves school readiness for children who may not be enrolled in childcare or pre-school.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
