In 1968 Zelda Langdale organized a grassroots group of local business people to form the Klamath Work Activities Center. The center provided a place for people with disabilities to go that offered paid, meaningful work as well as community activities. In 1987, this group and its participants officially established REACH Inc. For more than 50 years, REACH Incorporated has been a space for people with developmental disabilities and severe handicaps to thrive. REACH is a community-based employment center that connects individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment with meaningful work. Professionally trained job coaches encourage participants to express their energy, creativity, and talents and ensure that each individual's dignity and freedom is top-priority. Through REACH's employment services, people who often experience barriers to employment build self-worth and job skills while contributing to the Klamath Falls community. Currently serving 142 Klamath Falls residents, REACH continues to grow and implement new programs that will expand this vital service across Klamath county.
