To create quality affordable housing and opportunities for individuals, families and communities to thrive. REACH’s vision is one where all people live in quality, affordable, sustainable homes, empowered to achieve goals and enjoying a strong sense of community.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2015, REACH provided 2,677 people with stable, affordable rental homes. Of these individuals, 70 percent received information and referral assistance and participated in community-building activities, workshops or classes 15,154 times. Through REACH’s Community Builders program, 157 households received more than 1,000 free home repairs, helping senior and disabled home-owners remain safe in their homes.
“REACH provided a safe and affordable place for me to raise my children. I am grateful for the opportunities that were accessible for us! I sincerely feel REACH played a very active role in making things that felt impossible, possible.” —Christy, former REACH resident
