It is always a privilege to work with those on the “front lines” as they address the literacy needs of children and their families. Their perseverance motivates us to provide them with the very best resources and we are blessed to have a board with many years of business, education and community experience. Together our efforts can focus on implementing effective interventions with tangible results.
