The Reading Tree has a new home

Big news from The Reading Tree –

The Board of Directors is thrilled to announce that The Reading Tree has found a new home. As of July 1, 2018, The Reading Tree has become part of the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center in San Francisco, California.

Good Samaritan’s mission is to help immigrant families access needed services, develop self-sufficiency and participate fully as members of the community.  In a nation built by immigrants striving to create a brighter future, Good Samaritan believes struggling newcomer families and their children deserve the opportunity to succeed in their new community and strengthen our shared democracy. Good Samaritan helps young children, youth and their families to obtain the skills, support and resources they need to overcome the challenges of poverty and displacement, and to improve the world we share.

The Reading Tree and Good Samaritan have shared values and a strong belief in the importance of early childhood literacy.  Good Samaritan has been a partner of The Reading Tree for many years, and so this feels like the perfect way to give our literacy mission and values a much broader reach. Good Samaritan is committed to promoting The Reading Tree’s early childhood literacy mission.

We at The Reading Tree are thrilled that not only will our Growing With Books program continue at Good Samaritan, it will expand and reach even more families and young children in San Francisco.  

Please consider supporting Good Samaritan today. Now more than ever, local organizations that help struggling families here in our community need our financial support.

With immense gratitude for all of your support and generosity over the years. You have brought the joy of reading to so many children and we are forever grateful.
