Amherst Community Connections (ACC) provides information/ referrals, case management, outreach and advocacy services to vulnerable individuals and families in the Pioneer Valley community. We help them secure immediate relief as they plan for and achieve long-term stability. We walk alongside, support and guide people to improve their quality of life by helping them access basic resources: housing, food, income, healthcare.
They also offer advocacy. Areas of advocacy include housing move-in costs, food stamp/fuel assistance applications, debt/credit issues, mediation with a landlord or utility company, and many other topics of interest.
