The REACH Drop-In Center supports youth who are at-risk, experiencing homelessness or have run away. Since opening its doors in 2011, The REACH has served more than 4,000 youth in the Mankato area. The REACH provides basic necessities like meals, showers, toiletries, clothing vouchers, transportation assistance, and grocery vouchers. They also provide housing and shelter options including emergency shelter, a crisis nursery program and links to public housing services. In addition, the reach provides support & education and preparation for employment and independent living. There are several ways you can help support these young people. You can shop their Amazon wish list and help provide back necessities like toiletries, food, and clothing. You can sign up to provide a meal for the drop-in center, or you can make a financial contribution to support their mission.
