Addressing the many challenges that homelessness represents is a reach, but the non-profit, REACH FOR HOME, founded in Healdsburg in 2014, continues to expand its reach with a list of services targeting the particular needs of the homeless community of northern Sonoma County. Wellness services are at the top of that list, with the street medicine program its centerpiece.
The Rotary Clubs of Healdsburg Noon, Healdsburg Sunrise and Cloverdale recently funded a matching grant with their Rotary District counterparts to support the street medicine outreach.  Individual members of the Windsor Rotary Club also participated in this street medicine outreach initiative.
Presidents of the three clubs gathered at a recent Monday meeting of the Rotary Club of Healdsburg (noon) club to celebrate the $14,400 grant. Colleen Carmichael, the REACH FOR HOME Executive Director, and a Rotarian herself, was on hand to receive the grant check.
The grant will fund the purchase of computers and software to help those dispensing medical services under REACH FOR HOME auspices to maintain records of medical services dispensed and medications provided.
More information concerning REACH FOR HOME is available at, or by phoning (707) 431-6161.  Volunteers are being sought to serve in a wide range of capacities.
