REACH, Inc., a Juneau-based non-profit (501)(c3) corporation, is the one stop location for information, referrals, supports and services for children, adults, and families experiencing developmental delay or disabilities in northern Southeast Alaska. With headquarters in Juneau, an office in Haines, and staff in Petersburg, REACH also makes services available in other communities including Skagway, Yakutat, Hoonah, and Wrangell.


“REACH has been a Godsend for us. Just a wonderful resource. They have educated us on how things could be better (especially early on), we had support, learned a lot about resources, what accommodations were available…just very knowledgeable support over the years.”


In 1977 a group of local families decided to organize activities for their children with developmental disabilities. The result was REACH, opening its doors in the basement of Juneau’s Resurrection Lutheran Church. What started out as a small family-run group meeting in a church basement has developed into an agency now employing some 300 staff and serving 400 individuals.
