Helping Families to Help their Children


Families as First Teachers

Families are a child's first, best, and most constant teachers -- but it's a tough job!  We offer family-friendly resources to help families raise safe, healthy and learning children.


Family Literacy and Language Learning

Parents who overcome language and literacy barriers expand their job horizons, and are better able to support their children's learning.  Our Families Learning Together project offers the double benefit of a curriculum that promotes adult literacy -- while also providing support for effective parenting.


Birthday Books for Kids

What better way to encourage a love of reading than to celebrate a child's birthday with the gift of a great book?  Our easily replicable Birthday Books Project works with five 

Title I schools to provide every child with a high-quality children's book on each birthday.
