About Us

Our organization provides a vital 24 hour / 7 days a week refuge for children, teens and families in crisis. We offer human services including shelter, safety, and counseling to immediately help those in need.

REACH (Runaway Emergency Action Center Hotline) & Traverse Place are the only organizations of their kind in Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer counties. Many youths and their families have benefitted from the services they received and the skills they learned at REACH & Traverse Place.

All of our services are confidential and free to any runaway; or potential runaway aged 10 to 17. While we cooperate fully with police agencies and the courts, no young person or family is required to accept services from the REACH program. Many young people and parents call REACH directly for help, but we also accept referrals from schools, community agencies, police, and the probate courts.
