Family Services of Central Massachusetts is the grateful recipient of a $35,000 grant from the United Way of Central (UWCM) to fund the Summer Literacy Initiative. At risk children have the greatest chance of lagging academically for significant portions of their academic careers when they don’t achieve reading proficiency by Grades 3 or 4 – the time when they make the transition from “learning to read”, to “reading to learn”. The Summer Literary Initiative uses effective, evidence-based literacy strategies to work with children who are below grade level in reading and set them up for academic success. Thank you UWCM for our continued partnership to support the children in Worcester who need us most.
