Family engagement is at the core of what we do.
Our award-winning, evidence-based programs help caring adults set their children up for success by creating shared reading routines, fostering social emotional learning, healthy family relationships and learning skills needed to thrive in school and beyond.
We work through local agencies to provide family engagement and early literacy programming directly to families.
Raising a Reader builds equity-focused shared reading programs and curated book collections that are customizable based on local need.
Local community partners utilize Raising a Reader to support a child’s social emotional learning through promoting healthy relationships and learning in the home with a caring adult.
Caring adults develop a shared reading and learning routine in the home that foster a child’s love of reading.
Through our network of almost 300 Affiliate organizations, we serve nearly 200,000 children and families in 34 states every year.
