Homelessness and joblessness continue to leave Minnesotans without options. Open Access works with low income people to gain access to communications tools such as phones, voice mail, computers and the internet. Our voice mail program gives a voice mail number to over 3500 people annually. This communications tool helps them get access to jobs and housing and keep in touch with health care providers as well as family and friends. Our 50+ Generation Group is a group of low income elders who are seeking to improve their own lives and the lives of their peers.

Please help us continue this important work that gives people opportunities. Please make a tax deductible donation click here on our GiveMN donations page or bring a donation to the picnic/walk. You can also send a check to Open Access Connections, 1821 University Ave, Suite N-184, St. Paul 55104. All new and increased donations will be matched by the Frey Foundation.

This is a free community building and fundraising event. You don’t need to raise any money to participate.
