SUPPORT FOR ACCESS INSTITUTE • October, 2017
DAA proudly supports ACCESS INSTITUTE in its amazing work providing low and no-fee psychological services to Bay Area residents in need across our community. In this era of increased angst & healthcare uncertainty, it's especially vital that we support mental health services in every way possible, especially through this worthy organization of professionals. We're thankful for what they do and encourage you to read on, make a donation, and attend SPECTRUM GALA, their fabulous fundraiser Sunday, October 29, 2017 (see you there!)
ABOUT: ACCESS INSTITUTE OFFERS low and no-fee psychological services to those who want and need psychological support, but aren’t able to access it for any number of reasons including: income, cultural barriers, stigma around mental health, and lack of mobility.
THEIR DUAL MISSION
1. SERVE the people in our community who too often fall through the cracks; help them develop healthier behaviors and relationships so that they may thrive.
2. PROVIDE clinical internship training to the next generation of therapists who believe that everyone matters and deserves high-quality care.

LEAP ARTS IN EDUCATION places art residency programs in underfunded Bay Area elementary and middle schools. By using professional teaching artists, LEAP works to enhance classroom curriculum and promote student creativity. As designers & builders, we feel a strong connection between Leap’s work and our own stories of teacher inspiration. Here's to all of the great work they do!
