REACH Beyond Domestic Violence

REACH Vision: Healthy and safe relationships for individuals and communities. REACH Mission: REACH works with survivors of domestic violence to foster safety and support while engaging communities to promote healthy relationships. REACH’s Values: We are all in this together. We do our work as part of a larger movement. We are collaborative, supporting one another in task and spirit. We care for ourselves and one another. We recognize that survivors, staff and volunteers are more than the trauma they have experienced or the job functions they perform. Wellbeing stems from feeling grounded in our lives and work. How we do our work matters. The respectful, equitable relationships we work for in the world have to start with us. We practice kindness and respect, and we commit to being present for survivors, colleagues and our communities. We believe change is possible. We work with communities and individuals to change social norms and systems of oppression in order to prevent and ultimately end domestic violence.
