“The REACH Foundation has helped to increase my confidence by helping me accomplish my goals. It has taught me many valuable life skills such as patience, interpersonal skills, and the ability to adapt and succeed in any work environment”

Michaela Walsh  REACH participant

“The support that I received every day at REACH is helping me to stay in recovery, while enjoying all that life has to offer.”

John, Aged 22  REACH participant

“REACH Foundation offered a place of safety for our daughter to heal and welcomed her into an environment where she felt accepted and not stigmatized. She was provided the opportunity to interact with counsellors and other youth who are in their journey of recovery.”

Paula Guardian of REACH participant

“What an amazing opportunity our son was given to get involved with REACH Foundation early in his recovery. This is a time when individuals are most vulnerable to relapse, overdose, or worse. As parents, we knew that he needed to fill his days with positive experiences if he was to achieve long-term recovery; REACH gave him just that.”

Rose & Mike Parents of REACH participant
