Putnam ACCESS (Advocates Creating Change through Empowerment Self-sufficiency & Safety) is a collaboration of two community-based agencies: Community Options, Inc. of Cookeville Tennessee and Genesis House. Community Options, Inc. of Cookeville Tennessee is a local branch of a national nonprofit agency which provides services to individuals with intellectual disabilities. Genesis House, Inc. is a nonprofit agency, centrally located in Cookeville, dedicated to services for individuals who experience domestic and/or sexual violence. These two organizations came together with the vision that individuals with intellectual disabilities who experience domestic or sexual violence have equal access to organizations that work together to provide seamless, individualized services.
