Our mission is to enhance the capacity and effectiveness of literacy resources throughout Hampton Roads; promote the awareness of literacy programs regionally; and advocate for economic growth in Coastal Virginia through a literate community and workforce.
RIF program has put so many smiles on our students faces. Our school is a Title I school and it is not often someone partners with us to advance the students exposure to  good literature. We are so thankful to be included in the RIF program. We would like to see all schools benefit from this.                                     -Patrina Gilliam, Tidewater Park Elementary
