The mission of Reach Out and Read is to give young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.


Reach Out and Read Greater Philadelphia is 100% donor funded.  We have the privilege of  serving over 86,000 young, vulnerable children and their families at 85 clinical locations.  

Evidence-based research shows that when families read aloud to their young children, they give them a better start to life. With unparalleled access to families with  young children, Reach Out and Read medical providers give brand-new developmentally and culturally appropriate books to children at more than 10 well-child visits from infancy until they start school. More importantly, they encourage families to read aloud and engage with their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers every day.

Your support of our intervention helps to improve early literacy, language and school readiness among young children.
