R.E.A.C.H. FEST... COMING 2018
Our vision is that REACH Fest will provide a unique opportunity to develop critical and strategic alliances. Beyond the one-day event, we strive to promote partnerships that will provide stakeholders with the capacity to identify and address a range of inter-related adversities that impact the growth and development of healthy communities.
The event has been strategically designed to promote collective problem solving, create a pool of diverse knowledge and expertise, and develop more efficient cross-sector communication pathways.
Fostering collaboration will allow us to better understand and assess the needs in our community, and address them accordingly. REACH Fest will provide us the rare opportunity to co-coordinate the planning and delivery of community resources.
“If you get rid of unfair practices, quit blaming victims, quit gossiping about other people’s sins, If you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight. I will always show you where to go. I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places, firm muscles, strong bones. You’ll be like a well-watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past. You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community livable again”
(Isaiah 58:9- 12 MSG).
