After which seemed like a long pause, our work permit was approved last Friday afternoon. We are now able to put some elbow grease into our space. Donations of building materials are needed.

While we are working, we are compiling a list of names for clothing appointments as requests are called in. After we are set up, we'll be swamped with appointments!  There will be sizes that we will be needing and will be posted here.

With your support, people are still being served during our construction.

We were able to help a woman with interview clothing and another woman with work clothes when she started her job a few days ago.

A 4 month old has a bed for the first time and a 9 month old now has a play pen and toys at her crowded caregivers' apartment to keep her occupied and safe.

Thank you for your patience.  Give us a call if you have questions.  952-933-1393

I want to express a huge heartfelt thank you to every person who participated in our packing up and moving out of our "old" Reach & Restore location and into the "new".  The team work was incredible and we finished before the weekend!

Before turning in the keys today, when I took out the last remaining item at the "old" location, the sun popped out.  It was cloudy up until then.

I giggled and had a moment of tears as God closed that door and has opened a new one.  God's timing with the sun reminded me of this as He will "resurrect" Reach & Restore at the "new" address.

May your Easter be filled with reminders of Christ's unconditional love, sacrifice and invitation to join Him at a "new" address some day!

He Is Risen!

Hooray GOD!

We are blessed to share the news that we have signed our lease!

Our prayers have been answered and we will be busy with the transition in the upcoming weeks. Easter Sunday is our deadline for moving out and then work on the other location will

We won't be able to accept material donations until the space is ready but financial donations are needed and will be critical in the months ahead as our expenses automatically increased with our new lease.

As always, we trust God for our needs! THANK YOU for encouraging us.

Our number will remain the same.

It's been a full few months of praying, searching, waiting and trusting at Reach & Restore.  What an encouragement to hear that we are covered in prayers by both supporters and clients during our search for a different location.  Thank you.

We are also very grateful for all of the help offered along the way!

God has protected us by closing some doors and has opened one-  only one -  in Hopkins just a few blocks from where we are now!  This is the clarity we prayed for.

This week we're working on the details of our lease.  Please continue to pray.  We know God cares about every detail and will provide financially so we can continue His work around us.

Our moving schedule will be based on when the lease is completed.  Our last clothing appointments at our current location will happen this week and then our focus will be on our transition.

Please call if you have questions.
