Plan

 Respeto Empoderamiento Aspiración Comunidad Esperanza

La decisión de Max llevó al nacimiento de REACH. La organización se incorporó en Texas en 2017 y recibió su estado 501 (c) (3) exento de impuestos federales en 2018. Hoy, está gobernada por una Junta de Directores independiente.

 

La visión REACH

Para crear comunidades transformadoras donde los miembros históricamente invisibles, tengan la oportunidad de realizar todo su potencial.

La misión REACH

Para proporcionar los recursos necesarios para ayudar a todos los miembros de la comunidad a adquirir las habilidades y los activos necesarios para lograr la autosuficiencia financiera, construir riqueza transgeneracional y prevalecer sobre los obstáculos que les impiden alcanzar su máximo potencial.

REACH ha creado un ecosistema de educación superior autosustentable que alienta a todos los miembros de la comunidad de la Universidad de Texas A&M a experimentar respeto, empoderamiento, aspiración, comunidad y esperanza.

 

REACH tiene la intención de interrumpir el estigma social que se adhiere a los trabajadores de servicio de la Universidad entrelazando todos los segmentos de la comunidad y haciendo visibles las Aggies invisibles.

Programs
Our Pursuit

REACH simultaneously pursues community development, lifelong learning, quality workforce housing, health and economic security for Aggie workers, through creating opportunities for the entire Aggie community to be woven together.

OUr Programs

Food insufficiency was one of the immediate challenges facing families in the wake of mass COVID layoffs. REACH partnered with local funders, social media supporters,  restaurants, caterers, the BV Food Bank, and TAMU volunteers to provide thousands of family meals to laid off Essential Aggies.

REACH Health & Wellness Clinic

REACH Health & Wellness (RHW) Clinic is a student-run, and faculty-supervised, medical clinic and educational facility offering interdisciplinary high impact service opportunities to students from all across Texas A&M. The RHW Clinic will seek to serve Invisible Aggies, and others in the Aggie community who lack affordable access to healthcare resources. The RHW Clinic will be housed in a student-built facility to be located on or near the Texas A&M campus. This clinic will be a collaboration between the REACH Project and various departments and divisions within the Texas A&M system. 

The RHW Clinic will be lead by Dr. Regina Beard, the Executive Director, and Dr. Hector Chapa, the Medical Director. The Clinic will provide preventive healthcare education, diagnostic resources, and an intensive referral network to local medical and dental clinics, hospitals, and social service organizations when necessary. It is anticipated that over the next 3-5 years, under the University’s leadership, the RHW Clinic will become a fully functioning medical clinic; serving as an extension of the Texas A&M Health Science Center providing for interdisciplinary professional education.

The Village is intended to serve as a living laboratory to research, design, and test affordable home designs, materials, and construction methodologies; to evaluate the impact of nontraditional land use designs, active and passive energy technologies, and social determinants of healthy communities. Additional colleges and departments will evaluate the ways in which quality-of-life is impacted by access to clean, safe, affordable rental housing, reduced commuting times and costs, access to plentiful nutritious food grown on-site, regular access to preventive health care, and the availability of supplemental educational opportunities for workers and their children; all delivered via High Impact Service Learning Opportunities for A&M students. 

 

The Village will provide high quality, transitional rental housing, and community space for approximately 140 qualified Invisible Aggie renters who have committed to participating in the social, educational, health, and financial services and programs available in the Village, while saving money for a new home, and learning new skills for themselves and their children.

"... a través de la educación y las alianzas con estudiantes de posgrado para brindar atención médica honestamente, me sentí muy orgullosa de ver ese deseo de amar a las personas de esta manera. Súper emocionado de ver que los valores centrales de Aggie se viven tan tangiblemente en esta ciudad".
