Residential Empowerment Adolescent Community Home (REACH) is a community-based residential facility for committed and detained youth ages 13 to18 who are in the custody of and referred by the DC Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services. REACH provides youth involved in the juvenile justice system with a highly structured, service-enriched, homelike environment as an alternative to institutionalization. The expected length of stay for young people is thirty days. The program emphasizes individual, group, and family counseling; educational remediation; life skills development; substance abuse counseling; and self-esteem building.
Deborah Shore, SBY Executive Director, Liza Bowles, Principal of Newport Partners and a board member of HomeAid Washington DC, Jeffrey Slavin, CEO of HomeAid, Carolyn Eaves, SBY Operations Manager and other partners celebrate the REACH facility’s energy retrofit on October 12. SBY expects to reduce our utilities costs by 40% through several innovative “green” enhancements to the building.
