Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support

About Us

ACCESS, the Assault Care Center Extending Service and Support, arose from the need to confront and combat the issues of sexual assault and domestic violence in Story County. The agency began in 1974 with the help of the Iowa State University Government of the Student Body. Originally a rape crisis center, ACCESS services were expanded over the years to include a 24-hour crisis hotline and shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. In 1981, we opened our first shelter facility, a place where survivors and children could share a safe environment and more readily receive the services our growing staff and volunteers were ready to provide. ACCESS continues to serve Story, Boone, Marshall, Tama and Greene counties in central Iowa.
