Steve Boyer

Executive Director

“Leadership through Service” has guided REACH’s Executive Director, Stephen Boyer since he entered the job in 1982. Passionate about issues of Social Justice, he volunteered in a housing co-op which included individuals with disabilities in the early 1970’s and then in the Education of children at one of the first schools for students with severe disabilities in California. During this time, he has worked to address the communication needs of children and adults with disabilities in conjunction with the Department of Education along with the establishment of a symposium on communication with Syracuse University. Through his leadership, the agency has evolved from a small parents’ association to a comprehensive program serving people throughout California and advocating for improved communication, education and housing services nationwide.
