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 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 eleven area homeless and domestic violence family shelters in Hampton Roads.

Our Growing Readers program provides local at-risk youth with access to free books. Last year REACH distributed 15,756 books through our programs, valued at more than $55,000.

REACH is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
