Supporting the literacy needs of at-risk and homeless children in our community
REACH is a volunteer organization that supports the literacy needs of homeless and at-risk children living in shelters throughout the South Hampton Roads community in Virginia. Through our Shelter Read Aloud Program, volunteers spend time with the children in shelters reading and doing a support activity. The REACH Read Aloud program now serves twelve area homeless and domestic violence family shelters in all of the cities of Southside Hampton Roads.
Our Growing Readers program provides local at-risk youth with access to free books. Last year REACH distributed over 18,500 books through our programs, valued at almost at $43,000.
