We achieve our mission through several programs revolving around Literacy Outreach and Family Education. A few of our programs are highlighted here:

Adopt-a-Daycare: SSRF partners with ECEAP Head Start and childcare facilities to provide storytime activities, literacy info and presentations, and free books for children and parents.
Read With Me: SSRF partners with local businesses like Cabela's, and Barnes and Noble to promote the read "20 minutes a day" message and provide free storytime activities.
Literacy Bookshelves: SSRF stocks bookshelves at various low-income serving agencies with free books and literacy materials promoting the read "20 minutes a day" message.
Literacy Outreach for At-Risk Youth: SSRF partners with the Thurston County Food Bank, Homeless Backpack Inc, and local schools to get books into the hands of at-risk kids.
