Read Across America
March 2, 2019 was designated as Read Across America Day in celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday. During March, Pro Action's Family Resource Centers are hosting a weekly read-aloud session with Dr. Seuss books and parent-child activities for families, where participants will receive a free book to take home. View the Family Resource Center calendars HERE for all activity schedules.

Throughout March (and beyond), we encourage EVERYONE to pick up a book and read to a child in support of children's literacy.

Poverty Education
Separating the Myths and Facts
Myth: Poverty has little lasting impact on kids.

Fact: Research is clear that poverty is the single greatest threat to children's well-being. Poverty can impede children's ability to learn and contribute to social, emotional, and behavioral problems. Poverty also can contribute to poor physical and mental health, and poor self-esteem. Risks are greatest for children who experience poverty when they are young and/or experience deep and persistent poverty.
