Hola! Ciao! Bonjour! reunirse Mateo.

That means  "Hello, meet Matthew"


I was just 9 yrs. old when REACH-IN started. Mom says, I'm one of the reasons it did.  My 3 favorite hobbies are learning about dinosaurs, speaking foreign languages, and writing my own stories about my life with Autism.

Hi. I'm Isabel.

I love getting my face painted at REACH-Kids.  My favorite animal is the fox.  And my favorite pet are cats.  I have lots of cats.  And I'm an expert about everything Pokémon!

Hi! I'm Quinton.

I love sharks and dinosaurs.  Just ask me.  I'll tell you everything you wanna know about 'em..Rrrroar!  See what I made?  It's a giant cupcake!  I make cupcakes with play doh, too.

I'm "Big Jack"

I love trampolines & swings. But, my favorite thing to do is Special Olympics Bowling. I don't know, but I think the girls say I'm cute because I'm an Olympian.

I'm Isaac, and I'm known for my speed! I have two brothers J.B., and Hosiah.

What's up? I'm Abby.

It was my brother, Matthew, who got me into this.  Serving REACH-IN has become a great place for me to start my future in ministry.  Someday, I hope to lead a Sibling Support Group for REACH-Kids.
