REACH builds relationships with people experiencing homelessness and connects them to the help that they need – everything from food and clothing to medical care, shelter, and mental health and/or substance use treatment. Living outside results from a variety of factors ranging from unlucky circumstance to systemic discrimination based on class, race, substance use, or mental health. It may take time for people to be ready for services like shelter, mental health care, or substance use disorder treatment, so we meet people where they are and work with them to meet the goals that they define.
