HOW WILL REACH PARTICIPATE?
We will have the opportunity to let donors come visit our site and donate to our cause. Helping county residents facing housing crises or having other urgent needs have a place to go for resources, referrals and a listening ear. The funds collected will go directly to our programs the aide our goals, which include Cold Weather Shelter, Open Table, Financial Education, and Day Resource and Crisis Services.
Here is a story from a beneficiary of our programs:
My connection with Reach has impacted my life on so many levels. As a former recipient of Reach’s many services, I have gone from resident to board member. The staff are amazing. The programs and services are awesome. The volunteers are inspiring. It is a cohesive, dedicated and caring group whose compassion is extended to all involved.
I support Reach because I believe its goals of assisting those in need are essential for us to do…from crisis intervention to housing the homeless during the winter months. It is doing the work of our Lord. The services that are offered…financial literacy, mail services, cold weather shelter…along with human contact, are important to anyone in need.
Reach may be the last step to a new beginning for many. I know it was for me. The opportunities available through Reach’s programs and its collaborators afford advantages to all who make use of them. Reach is a comfort to those in need. Reach is a haven that fosters new hope.
