REACH OUT EXTIENDE LA MANO
THE STORY SO FAR
REACH OUT/EXTIENDE LA MANO was created with the sole purpose to ease the effects of homelessness and to help wherever possible to prevent families joining the ranks of those living rough.
We opened our doors for the first time in early May 2011 operating from a small unit of about 50 sqm in C/San Pascual Torrevieja (featured photo). It sported a shower, a small food cupboard, sorting and storage area and a seating area with 1 table, 6 chairs and 1 desk which served as an office as well as a coffee/sandwich counter. Compact and bijou!
Within a few months, overwhelmed by the generosity of the British community and the amount of people seeking help, we were bursting out of all seams and the hunt was on for much larger premises. We found them in C/Bella Antonia, almost 200 sqm. In November 2011 we moved and opened our combined drop-in -second hand shop- distribution-centre.
The shop was doing very well, free drinks and biscuits served from the coffee bar, sandwiches for the homeless, separate from it we had a proper food storage, clothes sorting, bric-a-brac area, washing machine, we put in 1 shower and there was a small screened off office area in the corner of the shop.
Within a few month, overwhelmed by the generosity of the British community and the amount of people seeking help, we were bursting out of all seams and the hunt was on for much larger premises.
Our Comedor now serves approx 50+ homeless with breakfast and lunch Monday – Friday.
The shops and donations provide much needed funds to maintain the work Reach Out has become renowned for.
