Innovative Partnerships: Raising a Reader met with families at Eden Housing
Our work begins with partnerships with local agencies such as schools, early childhood programs, libraries and community organizations like Eden Housing aimed at strengthening families, supporting social emotional learning and building critical reading skills.
Last year, RAR was gifted kidappolis, a bilingual app designed for caregivers to support early learning in literacy, math, and science and we’re busy learning how to integrate our home library programs with the kidappolis app through a test pilot in the Bay Area.
We are grateful to partners like Eden Housing for caring so deeply about their families and providing multiple opportunities for families to learn together.
The input from our Parent Design Session recently conducted with Eden Housing families is critical to creating Raising a Reader’s hybrid solution to family engagement and early literacy.
