Who We Are

Reach of Washington County is a faith-based, non-profit organization birthed in 1990 when a group of compassionate people agreed to make themselves available 24 hours a day for emergencies such as motel placements for homeless families, food, prescription medication and more.

We have come a long way since those humble beginnings. We now partner with the faith community to operate a year-round Day Resource Center where county residents facing housing crises or having other urgent needs can come for resources, referrals and a listening ear. With the help of local faith groups and more than 1000 volunteers we run a Cold Weather Shelter for homeless adults complete with case management to help clients move from homelessness to self sufficiency. And the original 24-Hour Crisis program continues to address urgent housing needs that arise after our normal office hours.

For more details about each of these programs,click on the green “Our Services” tab above.

Cold Weather Shelter Opens Soon

October 26 is opening day for our cold weather shelter. With the severe weather last year we serviced about 300 men and women. Unfortunately, the weather predictions for this winter call for more of the same and we expect high numbers once again.

You can help us now by donating supplies we will need to make it through the harsh months ahead. We hope to have the following items fully stocked before opening day: toilet paper, tissues, HE laundry pods, dryer sheets, 39 and 13 gallon trash bags, disinfectant wipes, dry cereal.

Office hours are 9am to 4pm. Please call before you come to make sure someone will be available to receive your donation. Thanks in advance for your generous support.
