READING FOR SUCCESS

Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy is committed to providing early learning opportunities with the hope of breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy.

Our vision is to afford the best chance to every child to succeed in school, and in life, and to help develop an educated, productive and competitive work force.

Children enrolled in the Ferst Program receive a new book every month in the mail until their 5th birthday. There is absolutely no cost (ever) to registered children in participating areas! The program is made possible through the partnership with local, all-volunteer Community Action Teams (CATs).

Robin Ferst was inspired to start the non-profit Ferst Foundation in 1999, which she dedicated to fostering literacy and creativity in pre-kindergarten children. Robin’s passion for reading began early; at age six she was diagnosed with hearing loss and books became the most important part of her world. Books gave her a confidence that she might not have known otherwise. Reading opened up a world of possibilities and helped her overcome challenges to become a successful businesswoman.

Organizer

Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy (FFCL)

Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy (FFCL) is a public 501 (c) 3 nonprofit with the mission to "provide books for local communities to prepare preschool children for reading and learning success." FFCL strives to improve early learning opportunities for every child regardless of income, race, religion or gender with the philosophy that any child who cannot read is at-risk. 

FFCL was founded in 1999 to address the growing problem of children from low-income communities entering kindergarten without basic early literacy skills and school readiness, a preventable problem that has far-reaching impacts throughout students’ lives. The recipe for early school success is simple: start school with strong literacy skills. FFCL’s recipe for encouraging early literacy development is even simpler. Ensure that children have developmentally-appropriate books in their home and provide parents with supportive material that reinforces the importance of early learning and encourages them to read frequently with their children.

Children registered for the Ferst Foundation literacy program receive an age-appropriate book mailed to them at home every month until their fifth birthday. By mailing a new book every month along with supplemental material to foster a language-rich environment in the home, FFCL upholds its commitment to provide early learning opportunities with the hope of breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. Our vision is to afford the best chance to every child to succeed in school, and in life, and to help develop an educated, productive and competitive work force.
