REACH has been building communities through three key programs in Portland, Oregon for 27 years. They preserve and maintain affordable housing, provide services to support and educate their residents, and provide free home repairs to homeowners who need help due to age, disability and low income. I have volunteered with REACH for several years now and each time I learn of a new, amazing thing they have done for our community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
providing the support people need to transform their lives - from homeless families/individuals getting off the street to an elderly person getting much needed repairs to make their home safe for them to continue enjoying their independence.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Meeting the people they serve and hearing their stories. Our community is made up of such a rich and diverse blend of people who have done extraordinary things, sometimes just to survive. It is wonderful to learn about the good things going on in the world.
