Early childhood literacy is an essential part of a healthy childhood. That’s why Open Door participates in the national literacy program Reach Out and Read.

Through this program, our health center waiting areas are transformed into reading rooms for young patients. Kids and families discover the lifelong joys of reading.

Our Reach Out and Read Program has been a big hit with kids and parents alike, which has produced a high level of demand for both volunteers and books. Learn about volunteering for Reach Out and Read or hosting a book drive.
