Every day, REACH, Inc. supports children throughout Coastal Virginia with literacy enrichement programs and strong community partnerships. In 2018, REACH was able to distribute over 21,753 books valued at over $110,000. Since March 2019, we have distributed 30,016 books and are on track to reach our distribution goal of 40,000 books!
Studies continue to prove that the number of books in the home provide an important foundation for reading and directly impact a child’s future success. REACH’s literacy programs help children who are at-risk and homeless beat the odds of living in poverty through future academic achievement. Our goal is to continue meeting the regional priorities of improving access to literacy and education for children ages 0-17, especially those living at or below the Federal poverty level.
