New REACH Home

The 2018-2019 REACH Home will open in mid-November. You are invited to an Open House on Saturday, November 17 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at 102 N. Union Street, Rochester. All are welcome.  

Please consider bringing something from our “Needs List” that is included in this Newsletter.  Please note parking is very limited and we ask you to park on Union Street or on side streets nearby.

On Sunday, November 18 we will be open to welcome guests.

Our Personnel Committee has now named a House Manager for this year and is currently filling all of the staff positions.

Funding REACH Home

Our estimated budget for the 22 weeks of operation is $123,350.  This includes rent, utilities, staff salaries, guest needs and our great social work team.  What this means is the we spend about $30 a day caring for each of our guests and supporting them in their efforts to find permanent housing.  While we anticipate some reimbursements from the County, many of our guests are not eligible and we endeavor not to turn anyone away into the cold.

            A gift of $6000 covers the cost for one person for the season.

            A gift of $210 covers the cost for one person for a week.

            A gift of $30 covers the cost for one person for a day.

Please consider a gift that you can afford.  All gifts are tax deductible.  Checks should be made out to FLACE - REACH Advocacy and mailed to REACH Advocacy, P.O. Box 10845, Rochester, NY 14610.
