What We Do
Promoting Language Skills
Our goal is to promote educational opportunities for moms in need. With access to the right resources, moms can become empowered by how they interact with their children. By increasing time spent talking and reading with your child, research shows that you can help build your child's brain! Improvement in language skills leads to improvement in your children’s learning. Boosting language skills and fostering a love of books is a proven way to help children succeed in the early years of their education. Having a variety of books available in the home is also crucial to this process.
