Dear Friends,

Please note that effective June 1, 2018 Program Reach, Inc. will permanently close its doors.  We leave with heads held high – yes, we are crying because it is over – but we are REJOICING because it happened!

Whether you were a Board member, a Donor, a staff member, a parent who entrusted your child to our care, a student, a peer educator, a principal, superintendent, evaluator, or simply a supporter of our work you were an essential part of our team. As a team, we were incredible! We had the opportunity to change the world for the youth that we were privileged to serve, and we ensured that we did that.

Over the course of our time together we would have made Vince Lombardi proud for “we have chased perfection; we have chased it relentlessly, knowing all the while that we could never attain it. However, along the way, we caught excellence.” That allowed us to make a difference!

We are all proud of what we have accomplished together as a team over the course of our time at Program Reach, Inc.  Collectively we have made a lasting impact on the lives of so many young children.  While the organization as we now know it will cease to exist, the work that we did, the message that we stand behind, and the youth that we serve will ALWAYS remain close to my heart.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have led this TEAM! Collectively, and individually, the Board and staff of this fine organization have been imaginative, creative, dedicated, passionate, and compassionate.  I could not have asked for a finer group of people to walk alongside me on this magnificent journey.

I will always remember Program Reach as a place that I called home for more than 10 years. It was work, but it was not work. An office, like other offices, with desks like a lot of other desks, in a building like a lot of other buildings; but, we were unique! We had an incredible team, and we made a difference to each other, and to the youth that we served. And the thing is, after all these years, I still look back with wonder.
