Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

27% of Georgia’s children live in poverty1. That comes as little surprise when you consider 65% of Georgia 3rd graders don’t meet grade level reading standards. Children who can’t read at grade level are substantially more likely to one day drop out of school and later find it impossible to secure self-sustaining employment. This fuels the cycle of generational poverty.
With your help, we can break the cycle. Please  watch our presentation "Our Children in Poverty - Imprisoned by Illiteracy" to learn more.

Then contact the Rollins Center for Language & Literacy for more information on breaking the cycle.
