Building Brighter Futures
Provides books to physicians, who share these with children at each well-child visit. Families are thus given a “prescription” to read to their children, laying the essential groundwork for later success with reading and literacy activities. This activity is provided by Lisa Edwards, our contracted Reach Out & Read Program Coordinator.
Provides a full free dental exam and cleaning to children who don’t currently have a dentist. At each exam, parents will receive a free children's book and are shown reading strategies to better develop an interest and love of reading in their children.
