Reading proficiently by the end of third grade is considered a predictor of future success. In fact, children who are strong readers by the time they enter fourth grade are more likely to graduate from high school, and pursue college or vocational training.

 

At Raleigh Rescue Mission, we are committed to advocating for the children who are in our care. We conduct individual assessments of each child, and tailor counseling and tutoring programs to get them to grade level expectations. Giving a child a chance for success is one of the best ways we can begin to break the cycle of homelessness.

Tutoring is a major focus to get the children in school to grade level expectations. Giving a child a chance for success is one of the best ways we can begin to break the cycle of poverty. Likewise, for the adults, reading is critical to obtain their GED to gain employment that leads to a livable wage.
