The Access Youth Center strives to maintain a safe, family-friendly environment accessible to every youth in our community ages 8-18. We have a variety of programs Tuesday-Friday providing after school and weekend activities, homework help, free snacks, and Bible studies. In addition, we provide an in-home visit program and host occasional special events.


“Someone once described this place as ‘Wabash’s living room,’ and I think that’s a pretty good example of what we want to be and what we are.”
— Liz Hobbs, AYC Executive Director
