About Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP)
For over 50 years, PCHP has been helping families prepare their children for school success through intensive home visiting. This evidence-based early literacy, parenting, and school readiness model addresses the achievement gap head-on, building language, social-emotional, and numeracy skills. By reaching families before their children enter school, PCHP provides them the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to build school readiness where it begins, the home.
About the Read by 4th Campaign
Read by 4th is a citywide campaign bringing together an ever growing coalition of partners working towards a shared vision that all children will be reading on grade level by the time they enter the 4th grade. Fortunately, research has shown that all children are capable of making great strides in their reading ability as long as they have support from adults inside and outside the classroom. With this in mind, Read by 4th partners are working together to improve school readiness, daily attendance, classroom instruction, and out-of-school learning. We believe that a family’s love for their children is our greatest untapped resource and are actively engaging and equipping families with the resources and information they need to raise readers.
