Disasters know no boundaries. They will strike anytime, day or night, and any month. In just the past few months there has been flooding, hurricanes, and tornados. READ is available to help those students impacted by such disasters. A recent CNN article explains the importance of getting students back to school following natural disasters. It is those exact reasons why READ was founded. Since our first response in March 2021, READ has helped over 2,800 students following disasters. READ has recently applied for several grants and is exploring other funding opportunities to allow us to grow and expand our response capability.
