Exploring the Universe to Inspire Those in it
Reach For The Stars serves to inspire people who have fallen on hard times. Some have never taken a chance to slow down, look up & see the wonders of the sky, especially through a telescope. Here at RFTS, we want to give you a chance to do just that, take a moment to stop, take in the beauty of the sky & be at peace, standing in amplified silence. When you are ready to Reach For The Stars... we will be HERE with the resources available.

With our community and mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with homelessness. We need to have each others back. For the homeless, it's rare for them to get real help. To begin, we buy backpacks with fundraiser money and fill them with first aid supplies, water, snacks, clothing, Naloxone kits, hygiene products and our laminated resource list, giving them a fresh start and the relief they need to sleep at night, prepping for the next day. Learn more in our programs tab above.
Bringing the universe to your area! We have some amazing telescopes that can pinpoint over 55,000 objects in the night sky in attempt to inspire you through hard times. We will teach you to control these computerized systems, all while spreading awareness of what is happening within the community. Join us at our next event, found in our events tab. Check out our Programs page for more detail.
With this initiative, our goal is to inspire hope and feed the hungry. RFTS has access to many resources, where individuals can become empowered and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Learn more about our initiative on our Programs page!

Each night in the United States, 49 million people go to bed hungry.
An additional 6.9 million families live on the verge of food insecurity. That means they don’t always know where their next meal is coming from.
