REACH is Edmonton's Council for Safe Communities. We are a backbone, community-based organization working to mobilize and coordinate organizations, community groups and Edmontonians to find innovative solutions to community safety and prevention.

Our Story

As a backbone organization REACH provides overall strategic direction with stakeholders, facilitates dialogue between partners, manages data collection and analysis, handles communications, coordinates community outreach, and mobilizes funding.

REACH has collective impact. We foster social change; a new way of thinking about and working to solve complex social issues to ensure our communities are safer.


Our training is accessible and provides knowledgeable, practical solutions for front-line workers, supervisors, law enforcement, social workers and others regarding best practices for working with vulnerable people and diverse populations.
