Program REACH provides various services, including rental assistance and family shelter. The 30-day shelter is for families with minor children. Clients must be employed. Families are housed in 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom units. There are a total of 8 units, which are "constantly" occupied. Raymond described Program REACH as a "desirable" shelter. He estimates there are 20-25 names on file this month waiting to hear about an opening. He believed 5-10 of those names would qualify for housing. He receives about 70 calls/day requesting emergency assistance and shelter, 30-40 of those calls requesting shelter. He recommends that clients "put their name on file" and be willing to call back to check for openings. When space opens up, clients are called in order of first come, first serve, from the record file.
