On Thursday, July 27, we were delighted to open the new Project Access Resource Center at Crossings at Cherry Orchard in Anaheim, California, marking our 100th resource center in the U.S. for Project Access. The afternoon featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony, a raffle of great prizes, giveaways, and informational handouts highlighting various services. Joining representatives from Project Access in the festivities were nearly 80 residents of Crossings at Cherry Orchard.

Like other Project Access Resource Centers across the country, this new center in Anaheim will help keep family members employed, children in school, and seniors active, benefiting the residents and the greater community. Project Access now has six Resource Centers in Anaheim affordable housing communities (the most of any city in California).
