What We Do

The COVID-19 pandemic precludes the operation of our usual winter shelter for 2020-21. We are instead supporting hotel-based housing, and a street outreach team linking persons in extreme poverty (often homeless) in the Clinton and Jefferson Avenue areas. In-kind needs are limited to new items, most conveniently given through our Amazon Wish page.

Our Mission

REACH Advocacy advocates for and with chronically homeless persons in the Rochester, NY area, seeing that all are treated with dignity and respect.

REACH Advocacy collaborates to create safe, financially sustainable, housing options to meet the needs of chronically homeless individuals by ensuring services needed and encouraging mutual care.
