“Helping First Responders Comfort Children-In-Crisis”

Vision Statement

“The first response is a book to comfort a child-in-crisis” Is REACH-A-Child’s vision. Whether the children are in an automobile accident, victims of domestic disturbance or temporarily homeless, REACH-A-Child wants to help First Responders engage these children in a positive way through the power of a book.

“Due to the nature of our work, Wisconsin State Troopers are regularly tasked with assisting victims through extremely difficult situations. Often times, those victims include children. The REACH-A-Child initiative provides a valuable tool to help children during times of crisis. Providing a book and a backpack to a child in crisis diverts their attention from the tragic situation and allows the Trooper to comfort them. The mission of the Wisconsin State Patrol is to promote highway safety and enhance the quality of life for all Wisconsin citizens and visitors by providing and supporting professional, competent and compassionate law enforcement services. The REACH-A-Child organization provides a beneficial tool that allows us to accomplish our mission.”

– Captain Charles Teasdale (Wisconsin State Patrol – Southwest Region)

We are very happy to announce that we have some extra hands helping us at our warehouse! Our newest warehouse volunteer is Signe Bedi, has some great ideas in helping us organize our warehouse. He has also acquired help from Promote Local who has sent volunteers to help us out, they will come out every other week. We really appreciate the extra hands. Signe will also help in organizing our volunteer days at the warehouse. Not only is he finishing our book inventory but he’s also making the process of filling our REACH BAGs for refills easier. He is also gathering books for new REACH BAG deliveries as well as basic organization of the warehouse. Because of Signes help and the Promote Local volunteers, our staff is able to focus their attention on the actual REACH-A-Child™ mission. If you see Signe around at various events, please take the time to thank him for his support of REACH and for volunteering his time at our warehouse!
