Reach is dedicated to healing lives of those affected by trauma and transforming communities by providing advocacy, education, treatment and support.
Reach began as the Rape Crisis Center of Winnebago County in the mid-1970s. The organization's mission is to focus on prevention, response, and healing of trauma.
While the hummingbird is one of the smallest birds, it represents courage, strength and resilience in times of adversity. No matter how small a patient feels after trauma, they an find strength through Reach's counseling, advocacy and education services.

Additional Advocacy Services
Latino Outreach - The Hispanic/Latino population is the fastest growing group in the Fox Valley region. Many adults immigrating to this area speak little or no English initially. This can create a gap in communication and understanding of legal and judicial processes. Our Latina Outreach advocate provides education, advocacy and translation services to Latina victims of sexual and domestic violence and their families in Outagamie, Winnebago and Calumet Counties.

Indigenous Connections - The rate of sexual violence to Native Americans is three times higher than any other population living in this country. Yet, they remain hidden from the general population and often avoid mainstream services. Indigenous Connections offers outreach, advocacy and support to Native American victims of sexual and domestic violence and their families. Tribal collaborations, and educational services are included. These services are offered throughout the Fox Valley Region.
