COMPASSION

Our commitment is to help people move towards stable and independent living through building relationships and connecting them to resources to support them in moving towards greater independence and self-sufficiency.

What we do

REACH is a non-profit organization that serves the community, providing assistance and outreach to residents in need. For those experiencing homelessness in the City of Bend, REACH provides a safe and trusted way to assist people with access to critical resources and referrals to local agencies which may include delivery of mail, medical and health services, transportation support, employment placement, and items such as sleeping bags and tents..

Services

The REACH Outreach and Case Management program is

A partnership among businesses, community members, social service agencies and faith communities to serve those experiencing homelessness, and centered around relationship, compassion, and collaboration.
Providing personalized, low barrier supportive services to a widely diverse population of seniors, families, children, veterans, single adults, and LGBTQ people who are experiencing homelessness and life challenges.
Coordinating and collaborating with community partners to connect Bend’s most vulnerable to necessary services and meeting the basic needs of the homeless community

Meeting the homeless wherever they live

The REACH case management approach is based on meeting the needs of the community in a mobile setting, with the ability to assist people living in cars, outside, shelters, tents, storage units, in the doorways of local businesses or on BLM land. REACH brings services and solutions directly to those in need, therefore reducing the barriers of access due to where people are living. This outreach is a proven model that substantially improves the outcomes of this vulnerable population.

Making the program accessible

The trust and safety of the program allows us to educate, advocate and better understand not only the impact trauma has had on our client but helps us to refer them to services that can provide trauma-informed services to better health, better care and lower costs which has a positive impact on our community .

Providing realistic solutions

When working with people in a constant state of crisis, we find we need to work in “real time” with solutions that are realistic. Using evidence and data to achieve the greatest impact while adapting our strategies to best fit our clients, their strengths, barriers and situations.
