CranstonArc has changed its name to AccessPoint RI to better reflect the growing breadth of it's services.
This nonprofit organization has long specialized in services supporting children and adults with cognitive, physical and medical needs to live to their fullest potential. In recent years, this expertise has expanded beyond the area of disabilities to include vocational training for a variety of adults through the agency’s People In Partnerships division.
AccessPoint RI, though based in Cranston, has several programs that serve people throughout the state. The name change will also help people who need the agency’s services to recognize that the agency’s geographic scope is statewide.
The name, AccessPoint RI, was chosen to capture the nature of the agency's work with people. The agency's staff creates partnerships with the children, families and adults who participate in services, supporting them to achieve their goals. Whether it’s a family that is seeking assistance to optimize their child’s development, an adult who may need support to live independently, or an individual who wants job training to find suitable employment, AccessPoint RI provides services to help people live fuller lives.
