ACCESS stands for Arab Center for Economic and Social Services.
The group was created by volunteers in Dearborn, Michigan to help Arab immigrants adapt and get accustomed to life in the United States. The organization has grown to include 11 locations with more than 120 programs that work in the Detroit suburbs area. The programs touch on educational, economic, health, and social issues. ACCESS is associated with national programs such as the Arab American National Museum, the National Network for Arab American Communities, and the Center for Arab American Philanthropy.
Specifically, they are involved with mental health services through providing needed services to their clients. These services can be individual, family counseling, and psychiatric services for children and adults. They have a bilingual, professionally-trained staff that focuses on issues especially imperative to the Arab immigrant community.
