What a blessing to finish 2019 with so many words of encouragement and support from our clients and friends. Just before Christmas we learned we will have to give up our meeting area to an expanding business next door at the end of January. This was very hard news to swallow.  Our volunteers worked very hard to make that space nice and many people have been impacted by the connections made in that area. We have provided many free haircuts and prayer as well.   We are grateful for the opportunities and trusting that God will turn this situation into something good.  Please keep us in your prayers.

Starting January 7, at 6:30pm, our new R&R Recovery group will be starting. This is something to be very excited about!  Our leader will be going deeper than the routine steps to discover the roots of addiction in someone's life. After January, the group will continue to meet at our site. If you would like to come, we' d love to have you but do need you to call us to let us know you are coming because space will be limited. 952-933-1393

November 2019

We are quickly approaching the season of Thanksgiving!

Each day those at Reach & Restore are reminded of how important your participation is to meeting the needs in our community and we are very thankful.

Our clients are needing winter gear. Adult XL coats and winter boots are gone or in short supply. Feel free to drop them by!

Today is "Give to the Max Day" in MN in which we see many requests for financial support of non-profit organizations in our inboxes.  Due to their high processing fee, Reach & Restore hasn't felt comfortable officially participating.  It is a wonderful thing to see the generosity of our state.  We can celebrate all the work that is being done by amazing people around us.

Blessings to you!



August 2019

We received a beautiful thank you card from a referring agency this week.  Not at all expected. We are an extension of the life line they are and many other organizations are in the community. It all comes back to our supporters who allow us to give and spread the love and encouragement that so many need!

It was a joy to talk to a family today who is homeless but moving into a place next week and waiting to hear if a job is going to be offered after 2 interviews. The clothing will help with the future job and back to school for the kids.

The cost of housing is a big reason many struggle with providing other basic needs.  Each item Reach & Restore passes on to others can relieve financial pressure in another area.  If you have what you need and find it easy to replace daily conveniences, please be grateful.

Fall clothing is now being accepted. Light jackets, sweatshirts, closed toe shoes, jeans, underwear and socks are welcomed now.

We can only accept smaller, working, flat screen tvs.  Box tvs can be brought to Best Buy for recycling. (there may be a fee)
