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.

Open Table

The Triumph of Relationship Over Poverty…For some time Reach staff discussed our desire to gather a group of people around a person in poverty and help him/her become stable. Around the same time, a board member heard Jon Katov, founder of The Open Table, speak about a model based on relationship that seemed to be exactly what we were looking for.

We investigated, went to training, talked at great length and decided this was the way to go. And here we are about 18 months later, having referred clients to our first three tables that are now up and operating, with three more starting this fall. Two tables are working with single moms and the third with a single man.
