The Coalition of Committed Christians (CCC), a public nonprofit directed by a volunteer board of diverse community members, operates an organization known as ACCESS (Actively Caring Christians Enlisting Support Services) in downtown Frankfort, Kentucky, USA.


The purpose of ACCESS is:

  • To educate all citizens of Franklin County, Kentucky, about homelessness; to help develop attitudes that will lead to positive community responses and solutions.


  • To personally provide at least one nutritious meal seven days weekly through a food service program for the immediate needs of low income and disadvantaged individuals and families.


  • To provide a temporary emergency shelter seven nights weekly which includes two nutritious meals.


Originally, the CCC operated a food service from Frankfort’s Church of the Ascension, in downtown Frankfort. Eventually, CCC’s leaders secured a permanent location for meals, and eventually, for temporary shelter.

ACCESS is staffed by a full-time executive director, six part-time staff, and numerous volunteers from across the county and region. In particular, the food service program is supported through volunteer workers who help with:  food pickup and delivery; food preparation; serving; storage; kitchen and dining area clean-up, and; other activities as needed.

ACCESS operates a shelter program for men, at least 18 years of age, who are without housing. This temporary emergency shelter is made available on a night-to-night basis up to 30 nights. ACCESS is also available, no matter how long the person has stayed in the shelter, on freezing nights when the temperature is predicted to drop below 32 degrees before morning. Please help us by donating your food, your time, or financial resources.
