Investing in Impact.
With 96 program sites at hospitals, clinics, and doctor’s offices, we reach more than 61,000 young children from birth through age five. Our clinics provide free children’s books and resources to families to promote attachment, parent competence and confidence, resilience, and early childhood literacy.
Our evidence-based model is backed by a large and growing body of academic research. We utilize the existing medical infrastructure to encourage supportive, educational conversations with parents on the importance of reading aloud and the impact on children’s brain development.
