The Special Access program provides social services to the elders by exposing them to the mainstream programs for their qualified services. 

It is provided by funding from the Trellis organization. Through this program, seniors over the age of 60 experiencing language and cultural barriers are given access to various social services from the government and are thus supported in their ability to live independently. 


Tai Chi and the Walk with Ease programs are evidence-based and funded by the MN Department of Health and our partner organization Trellis. The purpose of these programs is to promote the effective management of arthritis, as well as the prevention of falls among our senior population. These programs not only contribute to bettering the physical health of our seniors, but also serve as a means to effectively promote stress reduction and depressive symptoms in their lives.

Special Access Assistance Offered in: 

  • Welfare / Medical Assistance / Government assistance / Housing applications

  • Applications for citizenship, renewal of permanent residency status

  • Interpretation and translation services

  • Cultural events (i.e., for Korean holidays, Parents’ Day, etc.)

  • Offerings of activities and programs such as Tai Chi & Walk with Ease
