The Michael W. Czichotzki Learning Center located in the tri-plex is used for many of the programs and services Access offers to all of our clients. It's an ideal location for educational as well as recreational activities. The Michael W. Czichotzki Learning Center is named in honor of Michael W. Czichotzki, a client of Access who passed away Nov. 2007. He is dearly missed, but the impact he made on the lives of many will continue in The Michael W. Czichotzki Learning Center.

Michael was born November 12, 1971 in Fargo, ND to Mark and LaVerne (Wee) Czichotzki. He grew up and attended school in Moorhead, graduating in 1993. Since the age of 13, Michael received residential services from Access of the Red River Valley. Michael faced many challenges throughout his life and met them with the help and support of Access of the Red River Valley advocates and staff. He touched many lives and hearts and will be dearly missed.

A memorial has been established in his honor. Gifts and donations to The Michael W. Czichotzki Fund will be used towards the Michael W. Czichotzki Learning Center and all the services, activities and projects provided there.
