Reach Out began as a group of volunteers working with youth in the Kelowna area in the late 1980’s, and developed into a professional counselling center addressing the needs of youth and young adults in the community who had no resources for clinical counselling. On May 1, 1992 the center was opened on Ambrosi Road in Kelowna so that there would be safe space for those in need for years to come. Reach Out has offered affordable services since it’s beginnings, and has remained true to its mission throughout the years: to help youth, young adults, and families make sense, find meaning, and move forward.
Now, Reach Out still operates at the cozy Ambrosi location, providing clinical counselling, life coaching, and outreach services to those in need in the community. Although Reach Out has further subsidies for youth aged 13-25, we also have fee scale counselling for adults, couples, and families.
Reach Out is a registered charity in Kelowna, BC, servicing those in need from Peachland through to Lake Country. Reach Out is a professional agency that values all those who seek help in an inviting, warm atmosphere. The services that Reach Out provides has changed the lives of so many young people in the community, and that work continues today.
