Program REACH is the largest emergency shelter for families with minor children experiencing homelessness in Palm Beach County. Adopt-A-Family staffs and operates the Palm Beach County-owned shelter.

Program REACH provides immediate shelter for families living in places not meant for human habitation, including cars and parks. The program has 19 apartments and is designed to help families secure a permanent housing solution within 90 days. The program offers housing-focused case management, a food pantry, tutoring for students, mental health therapy, incentivized savings programs, and linkage to housing options.

From July 2016-Feb 2021, 402 families have received shelter services. Additionally, 91% of the 385 families that exited the program moved to permanent housing. In the 2020 calendar year,  96 families were provided with shelter services.
