Family & Education Center

REACH is a community-based organization that provides spaces to empower families as lifelong learners who together learn, live, and love seeking just and peaceful neighborhoods.


What are our hopes and dreams?

We imagine being able to transform the marginalized Brooklyn communities surrounding the REACH Center. By providing learning opportunities, REACH envisions the development of healthy neighborhoods, families, and individuals that are able to flourish. We seek to promote just relationships and advocate for social justice.

Our History In Touching and Transforming
the Lives of Children

At REACH, we believe that education attainment is fostered and strengthened when families are healthy. In turn, healthy families foster healthy communities. By working towards this end, REACH seeks to help individuals and communities flourish and live up to their God-given potential.
