Welcome to First Chapter
Jill and I are delighted to welcome you to First Chapter. We are mothers of young children who bonded over our fascination of our babies’ development and watching them explore the world.
Jill, who has a background in Literacy Education, introduced me to the the word gap concept. We immediately wanted to get involved with an organization that was working on this very issue. We couldn’t find the right one, so I decided to put my years on nonprofit management and fundraising into good use and together, we started our own.
We researched and talked to educators and it seemed the best way to help close the word gap is not complicated. Get parents to form a habit of talking and reading from the very beginning of their child’s life – the First Chapter.
