Child Care Resource and Referral would like to recognize the National Hook Up of Black Women, Inc. (NHBW) for their contributions in bringing free books to the children of our community. NHBW, Inc.  states,"Partnerships are essential to promoting community children's positive development, academic performance, and literacy growth. Together, NHBW, Inc. and Child Care Resource & Referral have collaboratively created imperative opportunities for children to further develop literacy competency. Through collaboration reading rooms and reading corners have been strategically placed throughout the city where new and gently used books are distributed to build family reading stations. This has allowed thousands of children free access to books that help to develop sense of importance, confidence, and an expansion in knowledge base. This is also the foundation of building "Readers for Life." NHBW, Inc. sincerely appreciates the service of Child Care Resource and Referral's reading corner and your support of children's literacy development. Your distribution of our monthly drop-off of books has opened doors and windows of opportunity for children by giving them ways to find themselves and solutions to life's many situations through stories.
