Firefly Fund is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to bringing adventure, opportunity and hope to young, at-risk children through literacy.
Here at Firefly Fund, we believe in giving kids an invaluable opportunity- the chance to explore through literature. A recent study (included in the Handbook of Early Literacy Research, Vol. 2) shows that while in middle income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1, in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children. Firefly Fund wants to be a part of changing this statistic. We work with families, teachers, schools and shelters to see how we can best help them bridge the opportunity gap in our city.
Thank you for being a part of our vision, our hope, and, most of all, for believing in the power of a good book.
