Funding Area: Education

Reach Out and Read Carolinas is the regional coalition supporting over 400 clinical programs reaching over 300,000 young children across North and South Carolina. The medically based literacy intervention spread from its founding in Boston in 1989 and was replicated by grassroots healthcare volunteers in communities across the country. In 2016, Reach Out and Read’s 29,000 volunteer medical providers gave 6.9 million new books to 4.7 million children at more than 5,800 healthcare locations in all 50 states.

Reach Out and Read has a two-generational impact; it builds children’s home libraries in low-income households, and most importantly, positively impacts parental behaviors affecting healthy language and literacy development for their child. The mission in the Carolinas is to provide a medically-based literacy intervention for all children birth to 5 years of age, beginning with families living in poverty. Reach Out and Read is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the program has one of the strongest records of research support of any primary care intervention.
