East Texas

East Texas Region

Our corporate office for Community Access, Inc. is in the East Texas region located in Tyler. We operate 7 ICF/IDD homes and 6 HCS Homes serving over 76 consumers. Each home is located in a residential neighborhood providing 24-hour wake staff. Vans are available to each home, providing transportation to and from work, school and outside activities. We also provide services to consumers who live in their families' homes in surrounding towns. Through CWFT, our day habilitation program, our consumers learn job skills; and, with the assistance of a Job Developer, assist consumers in finding jobs in the community. Other community sheltered workshops are available to our consumers based on ability and needs.

We serve consumers with varying degrees of abilities and disabilities ranging between 13-70 years of age. We have been successful in working with consumers that are deaf, those with behavioral needs, those who need hands on assistance with daily living skills and those with mental health needs. Each consumer's services are designed to address and meet their individual needs. We have been successful in working with consumers who demonstrate the ability to progress further in their independent living. We have successfully placed three consumers in the community to live productive lives maintaining their own apartment and job. Our consumers participate in a wide array of community activities, such as Special Olympics, ARC dances, Rose Advocates, church functions and camps.

We are proud of the services provided here in East Texas, and we await the opportunity to show you our homes, meet with you, and discuss how Community Access can provide services for your loved one. Community Access is your provider of choice!
