We fight for the children of our region. Our coalitions, funded partners, and direct-service programs ensure children have access to books and words in their homes, provide volunteers for high-dosage reading tutoring, offer wrap around supports to their families through our THRIVE Network, or help them overcome adverse childhood experiences through positive experiences and programs that strengthen safety-net services.
