General Info
History Of REACHREACH grew out of the dream of a group of local families who wanted to organize activities for their children with disabilities. In 1977, REACH opened its doors in the basement of the Resurrection Lutheran Church in Juneau. What started out as a small, family-run group meeting in a church basement has developed into an agency now employing 300 staff and serving 400 individuals. REACH ChronologyInitially, REACH focused on providing job opportunities for adults with disabilities. In 1984 REACH developed Ready Mail, a bulk-mail business, as a sheltered workshop for its clients. In 1985 REACH clients started cleaning the KTOO building as part of a vocational program and in 1987 the Custodial program began with a contract to clean the Federal Building. This program eventually expanded its contracts to state and federal facilities in Juneau as well as Ketchikan, Sitka and Skagway.In 1981, REACH's first assisted living home opened as a result of a major gift to the organization. Thereafter in the 1980s, REACH opened two more group homes for adults and children with developmental disabilities.In 1988, the Infant Learning Program and Respite were added to the REACH umbrella. ( The Infant Learning Program has since expanded with staff based in Petersburg and Haines, thus providing services to other small communities in northern Southeast Alaska. )In 1989 REACH started the Independent Living Program. ( These services are now provided through Respite, Support Services, and the Assisted Living programs. )In 1991, REACH began providing semi-independent accessible housing with the construction of a six bedroom apartment complex.
