Welcome to REACH

Founded in 1969, the Resource for Education, Advocacy, Communication, and Housing (REACH) is a private, non-profit organization that supports individuals with a variety of lifelong disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down’s syndrome and related medical and/or behavioral disorders. Our history of achievements is the result of strong community and family support and an organizational culture that continually seeks to remove barriers and change the limiting cultural stereotypes long associated with this population. REACH currently serves people in the Southeast Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley and North Orange County areas.
