Learn More About Our Organization

Although it seems like everyone has a phone or access to one, that’s not the case. In 1994, Twin Cities Community Voice Mail was founded so that people in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and beyond could have free access to voice mail that would lead to increased self-sufficiency.

Today, under the new name of Open Access Connections, we have expanded beyond the Twin Cities to serve all Minnesota and our focus has expanded beyond simply voice mail. Our commitment to and involvement with empowering participants has grown. More than ever, we are a partner who helps participants create a future through self-determination. Our use of communications and technology connects participants to the larger community, acts as a catalyst for bringing them into the mainstream, and focuses their power and strength as tools for social change.
