REACH is a volunteer organization that supports the literacy needs of homeless and at-risk children throughout eight cities in Coastal Virginia. Through our Read Aloud Program, advocates/volunteers spend time with children in both the community and shelters reading and providing a support activity. The REACH Read Aloud Program now serves eleven area homeless and domestic violence family shelters and 11 community partners!

Our Growing Readers program provides local at-risk youth with access to free books. During the fiscal year ending 2017, REACH distributed 19,523 new and gently loved books through our programs, valued at more than $104,000.

REACH is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
