ACCESS Builds New Low-Income Homes

ASHLAND, Ore. — About 20% of Ashland residents are facing poverty and ACCESS is hoping to help those struggling to find a home.

The organization is building six low-income units for families. They’ll go up the 2000 block of Dollarhide Way in Ashland. A spokeswoman said they purchased the land with a grant from the city in 2011. The organization expects these units to be in high demand. There is a wait list on other units they currently have.

“That’s why it’s so needed is because there are so many people out there that through job loss, or just not having a high paying job,” ACCESS Development Coordinator Merry Hart

Applications will be accepted in the spring and the units will be available for rent this summer.
