Rachel Germany is the Program Director for the Dallas /Ft. Worth region. She comes to Community Access, Inc. with a diverse background providing services for individuals with mental disabilities.
Rachel has served her previous HCS clients as a Case Manager, Residential Supervisor and Assistant Program Director. Rachel has also worked for the Fort Worth Independent School District in Special Services classrooms for individuals with delayed cognitive abilities and behavior problems. She later served that same population as a Behavior Interventionist and Crisis Prevention expert through the Lena Pope Home for over 13 years. During her tenure she was a strong advocate for inclusion and reintegration of those special education students into mainstream population and educational settings. She worked diligently to equip her students with the skills needed to be successful in their academic and social endeavors.

She is the mother of "four adults", Quinlin, Brittany, Rodney and Courtney. She says, as all of her children have left the nest, she looks forward to forging more familial ties at Community Access and putting DFW on the map. As her mantra states it best...DFW: ready, set, grow!
Community Access, Inc. has recently made many new and exciting changes for the Dallas /Ft. Worth area.
The first change was recruiting some experienced management, professional and direct contact staff. These changes promise to make a strong program even that much stronger. The second exciting change is that we are looking for a property and developing a curriculum for our own Day Habilitation Program. This program will provide for day services which include training in basic Education, Life skills and Social skills. In addition, this program will have elective courses ranging from Sign Language, Music and Cooking.
Our current Residential Program includes a 6 bed ICF-MR ladies home located in Dallas. We also have 4 HCS homes located in Mesquite, Grand Prairie and Arlington, TX. In addition, we provide services to individuals in their own family homes as well as in foster care settings.
We provide services to individuals of all ages including children to senior adults. Our consumers participate in Special Olympics, church activities, bowling, ARC functions and various community events.
We want to be your provider of choice. Whether your needs are residential, day habilitation, foster care or in-home support, give us a call. We can meet your needs.
