Reaching the World serves the immediate needs of homeless, low-income and working poor individuals and families. The majority of our clients are elderly and families with children who survivors of domestic violence, people with mental health and/or co-existing mental health and substance abuse disorders, people in economic distress due to unemployment or a one-time or ongoing medical or other emergency.
Some of the families have taken in nieces and nephews in addition to their own children so they have very large families to support during these tough economic times.
Many of the elderly need food assistance to supplement their limited monthly benefits, but also seek someone to talk to as they are often living in isolation.
The majority of the items we distribute are provided in-kind or at a minimal cost. We distribute these donated items by dividing what is available and ensuring that no one leaves empty-handed. As more families experience difficulties during this economic downturn, we need additional funding support to serve the additional clients' needs.
