Tutoring and Homework Help for Children
New Haven Reads
The overall goal of New Haven Reads is to provide an environment where children and adults have access to free books and tutoring to increase their literacy skills and academic performance. New Haven Reads has grown from a powerful idea to a thriving center of literacy located in the Dixwell neighborhood, with additional satellite locations.
