Reach Unlimited believes our members with intellectual and developmental disabilities deserve a safe and healthy place to Live, Learn, and Earn. Community support is critical to Reach’s ability to provide an enriching and meaningful life for members.
Bridging the Gap
Each year, Reach is tasked with bridging the gap in funding between the state Medicaid allocation and the actual cost of services for members each year. Currently that gap is $1.25 million or about $4,350 per member for Individualized Skills & Socialization (ISS) (not including residential services). Fun fact: the Medicaid rate for Individualized Skills & Socialization (ISS) is only $30 per day and has not had a significant rate increase since 2007!
Reach provides the most comprehensive programs in greater northwest Houston. This is done by maintaining a staff to member ratio of 1:5 at the Learning Activity Center and 1:3 in the group homes (the LAC ratio is 2-3 times greater than most day programs). Plus, Reach maintains 23 group homes and 30 vehicles in service of members.
Because it is what every member deserves. Reach’s community of supporters give selflessly each year to ensure Reach’s members have an enriching life today and for the rest of their lives. The staff and its core group of volunteers work tirelessly to provide a fun and educational environment for members. And providing a Medicaid allocation quality is simply insufficient for our members’ success.
For every $1 donated, 89 cents goes directly to member programs and services. Reach prides itself on being a lean organization with incredible high standards of care.
Please consider bridging the gap for a member by donating today!
