Reach Out & Read Carolinas Trained Medical Providers

Reach Out and Read Carolinas plays a critical role in the lives of young children and their families. It supports bonding, early brain development, and a love of learning.  At every interaction with families, ROR is committed to ensuring the intervention is moving from transactional to transformational, and we are doing this together – as social impact partners.


  • We focus on positive impacts for families and communities through a two-generational lens.
  • We understand the social determinants of health and their impacts on the lives of the children and families in our community.
  • We support and build strengths and skills in parents to have healthy families and strong communities.

Our evidence base of 15 peer-reviewed research studies shows that during the preschool years, children served by Reach Out and Read score three to six months ahead of their non-ROR peers on vocabulary tests. These early foundational language skills help propel children on a path of success when they enter school.

A Happy Ending

“Building our future workforce in South Carolina is a top priority of The Boeing Company. Community partners like Reach Out & Read of the Carolinas are helping prepare children to become life-long learners. We need all students to be ready for Kindergarten and Reach Out & Read is equipping parents and caregivers of children from birth to age 5 with the resources needed to give South Carolina children the tools they need to succeed.”

Lindsay Leonard, Senior Director, National Strategy & Engagement, Boeing South Carolina
