MOONBEAMS AND SWEET DREAMS
Serving families with children ages 0 to 5, our bedtime reading program strives to promote a consisent bedtime reading routine. Our programs provide families with four brandnew books, a blanekt, a routine sheet, and a breif workshop on the importance of reading together!
Through the Growing Readers Program, REACH distributes books to local at-risk children and youth to develop their own home libraries. One of our longest running community partnerships, is the Children’s Museum of Virginia in Portsmouth.
RAP SESSIONS (READ ALOUD PROGRAM)
REACH RAP Sessions are conducted weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly, read-aloud sessions take place at 11 shelters and through 16 community initiatives across Coastal Virginia to help children build stronger academic futures. Since 2012, REACH Inc. has supported the literacy needs of over 6,000 new and returning children and distributed over 95,000 books valued at over $350,000.
REACH serves as a resource in the community to help establish give away libraries and other literary needs for partner organizations.
