Summary

This project will provide vital books, materials, family engagement, and early literacy support to 1600 children in high-need communities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Research shows that if children are not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade, it is unlikely that they will ever catch up. Early literacy for vulnerable children and families is crucial. When children have the support they need, they enter school ready to learn. When they do not, the academic deficits not only grow, but persist over their school careers.

How will this project solve this problem?

Raising A Reader (RAR) provides strong family support systems, and solid outcomes with a model that is cost-efficient and can be scaled to meet the needs of some of the hardest to reach children and families. RAR works with communities throughout the country to give the most vulnerable children the tools they need for educational and lifelong success.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will provide vital materials and support to 1600 vulnerable U.S. families. By improving the language and literacy skills of children at risk of educational failure and strengthening parent-child relationships and family educational involvement, this program will have a far-reaching impact on children and families.
