WE ARE HERE FOR YOU

During this difficult time Reach Out & Read Illinois aims to support our pediatricians, families and children.

Access COVID-19 resources from our partners, stories from our clinics and participate in positive initiatives.

WHAT WE DO

Reach Out & Read Illinois prepares low-income children for kindergarten by incorporating books into pediatric visits from six months to five years, connecting families to neighborhood resources and encouraging families to read together.

Reach Out and Read Illinois builds on the relationship between parents and healthcare providers. Books are an important part of early learning and brain development, and Reach Out & Read Illinois distributes early learning resources and over 142,00 books to families every year. Yet, this is only a fraction of those that need support.
