Program REACH is the largest emergency shelter for families with minor children experiencing homelessness in Palm Beach County. Adopt-A-Family staffs and operates the Palm Beach County-owned shelter.
Program REACH provides immediate shelter for families living in places not meant for human habitation including cars and parks. The program has 19 apartments and is designed to help families secure a permanent housing solution within 90 days. The program offers housing focused-case management, a food pantry, tutoring for students, mental health therapy, incentivized savings programs, and linkage to housing options.
Since assuming operations of the shelter in 2016, REACH has provided sanctuary to 360 families (as of 3/31/2020). 89% of these families exited to permanent housing.
Since January 2018:
- 93% of REACH families have been placed into stable housing
- 95% of REACH families were still stably housed 3 months after leaving the program
