About Reach UP

Reach UP Magazine is a one-of-a-kind magazine designed specifically to empower and enrich the lives of women living in government housing, prison, rehabilitation homes and shelters. We understand the challenges of living at or below the line of poverty (oftentimes with several children) so our articles are realistic all the while encouraging and never exploitive or demeaning.

Reach UP Magazine is published quarterly with helpful articles on Faith, Family, Fashion, Finances, Fitness and Food.

Currently, Reach UP Magazine is in English and Spanish. Some issues have been in Portuguese (Brazilian) and French.
