Program Reach is a member of a collaborative of service providers representing a continuum of care for the homeless and homeless at-risk in Palm Beach County. Program Reach is an emergency shelter for homeless families with dependent children and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Families in the shelter are part of a structured, supportive program that includes crisis counseling provided by The Center. Residents with other needs are linked with collaborative agencies, after-school tutoring by Palm Beach County School District teachers is provided to children at the shelter, and families receive budgeting and employment counseling. Pat Reeves Village provides temporary emergency shelter in area motels for homeless families. For people at imminent risk of homelessness, this program provides food vouchers, assistance with rent, mortgage and utilities. We also provide relocation assistance (Traveler' Aid) for individuals who are stranded to return to their out-of-town families. Referrals, food, clothing and personal hygiene items are provided to the homeless and at-risk served by both programs.
