Huge thanks to everyone who made an end of year gift to New Haven Reads during our annual appeal!

Reading is critical for school – and life – success. By sharing the joy and power of reading, New Haven Reads is working to build a community of readers who will break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy.

Our students and our community need New Haven Reads now more than ever. “The lost school year” is how many people are describing 2020.  Many students are falling behind in their schoolwork, and for those already working below grade level, this loss is especially devastating.

Because of you, New Haven Reads will continue to be a bright spot for our students and families. We will continue to reduce the educational gaps that our students face.

In 2021, we will continue to:

  • provide our one-on-one tutoring and literacy programs
  • serve our Kindergarten students and we will expand this program to serve more children
  • distribute thousands of books at food pantries and through partner organizations
  • support our families with technology and internet access.
