The Film

When we started the process of developing a film to tell the ACCESS story, we realized it couldn’t be done the traditional way. It was something that is as unique as each of our team members and every one of the neighbors we serve. Our film needed to be more. It needed to be a true tribute to our team, for all of their hard work and to our neighbors we serve in need of food warmth and shelter for their resiliency and courage.

About The Film

ACCESS Releases Short Film Telling the True Stories of ACCESS Clients

Earlier this year, ACCESS partnered with local film company Heartisan Film to create an emotionally impactful video that communicates the importance of the services ACCESS provides and how it makes a difference every day in the lives of our neighbors in Jackson County. The 6 minute film features vignettes of actual client stories as portrayed by ACCESS team members.

“When we started the process of developing a film to tell the ACCESS story, we realized it couldn’t be done the traditional way. It had to be as unique as each of our team members and every one of the neighbors we serve. Our film needed to be more,” states Pamela Norr, Executive Officer at ACCESS. “It needed to be a tribute to our team and volunteers, for all of their hard work, recognition of our donors and generous community and to accurately tell a few stories of the resiliency and courage of our neighbors in need of food warmth and shelter.”

Last year, 52,497 people received assistance from ACCESS, which is one in four Jackson County residents. Additionally, ACCESS moved 4,938,166 pounds of food through its pantry network, assisted 5,273 households with energy assistance, and helped 476 veterans with housing and other vital resources.

It is also on ACCESS’ Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin and Youtube.
