Cash Donations

We are a not-for-profit organization and depend upon donations and grants to conduct our mission. Our most immediate need is to raise half of the approximately $100,000 needed to operate our emergency shelter for the winter of 2019-20. In-kind donations are also accepted; a partial list of needs is below.

Our 501(c)(3) status is pending. For the present donations can be made with a check made out to “FLACE/REACH Advocacy” and mailed to PO Box 10845, Rochester NY 14610, or donations may be deposited directly to our FLACE/REACH Advocacy account. Click the donate button and then choose REACH Advocacy as the organization to which you wish to make your donation:


All donations are tax deductible. Any questions please contact Sarah Peters our donations coordinator at
