What We Do

REACH Home 2018/19 Is Now Open

We are now housing 26+ men and women, but these efforts depend on community support. To help meet this year’s needs please donate (in cash or in kind) and /or volunteer as you are able.

For the past three winters we have created and staffed emergency shelters for homeless persons unable to find shelter anywhere else. We are pleased that for 2018-19 we have once again partnered with Dimitri House, Inc. to open winter temporary transitional housing for homeless men and women at 102 N. Union Street.

Beyond addressing immediate needs we work to find sustainable housing solutions and services to reduce the recurring need for these emergency arrangements. To learn about our efforts over the summer toward a possible community of tiny homes please see our volunteer page.
