At REACH, we believe everyone is hardwired for social and emotional connections. Research shows that healthy relationships are vital for a child’s growth and development. REACH is dedicated to helping facilitate those relationships. Whether it is our one-to-one Mentorship program, after-school tutoring academy, weekend outdoor expeditions, or annual summer camp, REACH’s goal remains the same, “Building Relationships that Change Lives.” Through these healthy relationships, REACH seeks to promote compassion, empathy, integrity, and social accountability among our students, while preventing any child from feeling alone, forgotten, undervalued, bullied, or hopeless. We want to ensure that every child feels connected to their peers and the larger community. All of our programs are focused on accomplishing this goal. Regardless if our students are feeling socially isolated, dealing with the effects of trauma, or struggling with developmental/emotional issues, we strongly believe that healthy relationships are key to addressing these challenges. A recent email from one of our parents clearly highlights this point. She states, “(My son) seems happier and has more self-confidence. He seems less anxious and afraid, (and) takes more chances exploring new things…I have seen such a change in (him) this year and I know it is a result of his involvement in Reach.” REACH is a referral based organization, with strong connections to Newtown’s various schools.

The Exceptional Partner Service Dogs is here to provide the community of Newtown with a way to give back to others. With the help of teens, educators and families working together we train service dogs that are placed with individuals suffering from psychological disabilities. These dogs allow our clients to leave their homes again, get through work with less anxiety, attend school without panic attacks, and live the life that they want to live.
