Reach Fellowship was really good to me. My name is Jacqueline and I am homeless. I was referred to Reach by my mental health case manager. i live in my car with my boyfriend and I just got out to jail. Reach fed me and gave me some soap and deodorant yesterday and I was able to clean up. I am excited about starting with them. They were so welcoming and helpful. I can't wait to go back and participate in the classes next week.

I watched you on Secret Millionaire in August of this year. I was so touched by Reach's kind and giving energy. And, by watching you on that program, I was amazed to see how much kindness means to a community. The Reach agency and their staff was outstanding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to see them be able to have enough money to expand to my town in Massachusetts

I have been a member of the Reach Board of Directors since 2010. I have seen massive growth and advancement for the organization. Since our time in North Richmond, we have serviced over 1000 women and children. We have fed the hungry and helped find shelter for the homeless. We have made such advancement for women--especially for women coming out of prison. It has been through great volunteers and generous donations that Reach has been able to keep there doors open. I am excited about what is ahead.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

We need more funds (grants, donations, contacts) to expand our services.

I was told that Bishop Santiago and Belinda Thomas help people with records(felonies) get jobs. This was a lie. She had me work for her for three months and never paid me. I researched grants for her. I was one of 6 employees working for her and they never got paid either. She and her partner in crime Belinda Thomas is a fraud, and they should be closed down and their 501c3 should be revoked!
