Access Partnership, formally established in 2004, is a nonprofit community collaboration of diverse stakeholders who share a common goal of improving access to health care to people in need in Hampton Roads and surrounding areas. Our objective is to mobilize efforts and eliminate major gaps in health access for economically disadvantaged individuals by strengthening the safety net systems of care, expanding existing programs and creating new programs for identified gaps in care. Access Partnership's mission is to facilitate the connection between those with health needs and available resources. Our current programs include The Donated Medical Supplies & Equipment program, which accepts new and gently used items that are gifted to nonprofit organizations and individuals in need. Supplies and equipment that is unable to be utilized in our communities are provided to mission groups for humanitarian efforts abroad, keeping tons of would-be waste out of our landfills; The Dental Access Help Line assists callers in need of dental care by connecting to the dental safety net, outreaches, and dental programs. More than 2,000 calls were received in 2018. Each caller is assessed by our Oral Health Coordinator to determine the most appropriate program or provider to connect for care; Donated Dental Services (DDS) program connects eligible applicants to volunteer dentists in Hampton Roads and Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Eligibility includes adults over 65 years, disabled persons, or individuals with health conditions requiring dental care to improve their health status (i.e. chemo/radiation treatment, joint replacement, organ transplants, heart surgery): Dental Outreaches, such as Oral Health Screenings, Dental Access Days and Missions of Mercy are held throughout Hampton Roads in collaboration with Dental Associations, Private Dentists, Clinics and other organizations. Access Partnership provides promotion, recruitment of volunteers and patients, resource connection and as fiscal agent and fundraiser; Noteworthy News electronic emails are released weekly to share news, events and resources related to health access to over 1,200 subscribers.
