- Advocacy- Access II provides two kinds of advocacy: (1) Individual Advocacy- We assist and educate individuals to become self advocates against discrimination. (2) Systemic Advocacy- We participate in activities to make changes in the community, the state, and the nation allowing persons with disabilities to live more independently.
- Independent Living Skills Training- Access II provides training to help people with disabilities gain skills that would enable them to live more independently.

Access II can help provide transition assistance to individuals who wish to move from an institution setting back into the community.
