How you can help AND GET INVOLVED
REACH is your community health centre and there are many ways you can can get involved and help out:
REACH provides innovative, high-quality primary health and dental care, and social, and educational services to support the physical and mental health and well-being of our community and individuals within it. We are a non-profit with funding from Vancouver Coastal Health, revenue from our dental clinic and pharmacy, and grants from community and governmental agencies. However, donations from our supporters can help us do more for our wonderful, diverse community.
BECOME A REACH MEMBER
Anyone who is a current patient or client, or who lives or works in the Grandview Woodland Community is welcome to join as a REACH member. Members vote at the Annual General Meeting in September, when a new Board is elected and may serve on committees. They may also be invited to attend events or give input into REACH’s activities. Membership is also an excellent starting point for individuals who may want to join our Board of Directors.
Our Basics for Health program relies on dedicated volunteers to run their referral-based program. Volunteers assist individuals and families with meeting their needs for housing, employment/income security, healthy child development, food security, education, and social support as needed. Volunteers will provide support to clients through information and resource provision, referrals, advocacy, and follow-up while working with other volunteers to maintain efficient service.
We also have opportunities for dental health students to volunteer in our dental clinic. Please contact us for more information.
