With your gift, Home Visit Partnerships will work with Unite for Literacy to change the book deserts in Tarrant County into book gardens.
66% of Texas 8th graders who have 100 books or more in their home and a daily habit of reading score at or above proficient on the NAEP Reading Assessment as opposed to only 22% for those who have less than 100 books. Unite for Literacy predicts that only 6% of students have at least 100 books in their home and a daily habit of reading. Your gift today will help that number grow.
Families, identified by participating HVP teachers will receive book packets (4 books and 1 tip card) on a regular basis throughout the period that your gift sponsors.
