We have a relaxed, “no strings attached’ approach, so that at any point in the process you do not feel comfortable in moving forward, you are not obligated to do so. We will guide you through the process and be available to you every step of the way!

We would be happy to sit down with you, answer any questions you many have, and provide you with an overview of the process of becoming a host family.

If you would like more information please call the Access Services office nearest you or complete a Host Family Inquiry Form to submit your inquiry online.

Educational Internships

Access Services partners with educational programs to provide students with real world experience as they train to become social service professionals. Some institutions require real world experience in social services as part of their degree program. Access Services may be able to meet these requirements. In addition, employers frequently seek individuals who have shown a commitment to social services through volunteerism beyond the classroom. Access Services can provide real world experience and opportunities for growth. Contact us today for more information.

Teen Talk Line

The Teen Talk Line is looking for teenagers between the ages of 14 to 18 years of age to participate in our new volunteer talk line program. The Teen Talk Line operates through phone and chat during the hours of 3:00pm to 9:00pm Monday through Friday.

We are looking for mature students or teens that want to be a volunteer talk line operator to help fellow students. They should have a desire to serve the community by supporting other students in their same age bracket. In some cases they may be eligible to receive school credits and or fulfill their schools requirement of community service. Students will receive training and supervision and no previous experience is required.

The line will help teens with issues experienced at home, school or wherever and whatever they might be struggling with. It is an opportunity to talk to someone who can relate to what they are going through.

If you know anyone that may be interested please contact 215.540.2150, x321 or email teentalkline@accessservices.org.
