Contra Costa County
First Five Contra Costa
When Raising a Reader began in Contra Costa in 2003, the program served 150 families as an integral part of school readiness activities. In 2010, they anticipate serving nearly 2,000 children through family resource centers, home visiting programs, family child care and preschool centers, and family literacy programs. Raising a Reader is not only a fundamental tool used by a variety of First 5 funded programs to increase family engagement in their child’s learning, it is a pivotal part of Early Childhood programs’ facilitated quality improvement activities.
