Who we are…

Reach Out is more than a name — it is our philosophy and what we do.

Reach Out is dedicated to embracing communities, youth, and families to strengthen the human bonds that enable all members of the community to grow and thrive.  Since 1969 we have worked for all young people to have access to networks of support, quality education, career options, and opportunities to develop the skills to succeed in their lives.

We encourage positive change across the lifespan with programs assisting youth, their parents, and community members throughout the Inland Empire and Pomona Valley. Our dedicated and highly trained staff understands the value of compassion, commitment, and perseverance while also remembering the fun side of life and the smiles that make a difference.

We recognize that in order to make our vision a reality, we must reach out and partner with others who care about our communities. We serve as a catalyst, convener, and partner in collaborative solutions with local government, schools, universities, community organizations, neighborhoods, business, law enforcement, and community volunteers. These relationships help us stay in close touch with the reality of life in communities we serve, and we constantly adapt our programs and strategies to meet their changing needs.

We are Reach Out. We are strengthening communities.

REACH OUT | for 45 Years…

For more than 45 years, REACH OUT has been protecting the future of our youth!

Reach Out began in 1969 as a drop-in center where youth and adults could find help with battling substance abuse. In the years since then, Reach Out has adapted to community needs by pioneering and successfully replicating numerous innovative programs. These programs empower young people to maximize their educational, career, and life potential while reducing their risk for substance abuse, violence, and teen pregnancy.

Reach Out partners with local cities, school districts, city and county agencies, law enforcement, business and over 80 local health and social welfare agencies to build community hope and strength.

Reach Out is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit agency serving Southern California’s Inland Empire and Pomona Valley and receives funding from federal, and county funders, local organizations, foundations, businesses and individual donors.

We invite you to learn what REACH OUT is up to in your neighborhood and 
join our team as an advocate, volunteer, or donor!
