About Reach Unlimited

We believe that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities deserve to live a life full of joy, purpose, and accomplishment in a safe and caring environment. Reach Unlimited assists individuals where they are today and equips them to achieve their personal goals. Through a body, mind, and spirit approach, each individual is able to grow and fully participate in an enriched environment.


Reach Unlimited is dedicated to providing quality support services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Reach Unlimited will create a sustainable and secure environment where people with developmental disabilities may become all they are created to be.


Reach Unlimited began in 1983, when a group of parents of young adults with disabilities joined forces. Their children had graduated from special education at school, and they asked, "What's next?" They wanted their children to have a life and quickly learned that the options were limited. So, they started writing grants. Then they banded together to form a nonprofit and Reach Unlimited was incorporated on September 23, 1983.

These founding families had a vision for their children to have long and productive lives, but what they wanted most for was their children to have independence. In hope to create a safe place where their children could live and continue to learn, they opened their first group home in 1983 (pictured), and a second one year later.

In January 2005, the Blair Inez Scianna Learning Activity Center was opened to allow Reach a school-inspired space to provide its comprehensive day program. With the completion of Phase One of the LAC, Reach offers the most comprehensive programs and services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the greater Houston northwest!
