IN THEIR HANDS LOGO_official.jpg

It's official.  We are a 501 (c) (3)
charitable nonprofit.

IN THEIR HANDS, started in 2020, with a campaign where videos of children's book authors reading their books are posted on Facebook for all to enjoy.

Where did the idea for this venture come from? How did this journey get started?

It was jumpstarted with a letter and snowballed from the generosity of others.

Mission, Vision, and watch for updates.

We commit In Their Hands, Inc., to unlocking the full potential of children through the love of reading and writing. Reading helps develop literacy skills during children’s growth cycle. Children who live in economically disadvantaged communities struggle more with literacy skills.

 For families living in poverty, books are a luxury purchase outweighed by basic living expenses.

 Many families that immigrate from other countries have difficulty with literacy as well. 

 This can lead to poor grades, more school issues, and display behavior issues.  Low reading and math skills lead to higher rates of unemployment as children grow up to adulthood.

Researchers have linked illiteracy to higher rates of incarceration.

 All of this has a negative impact on society. 

1.  We will build book nooks, fill them with children’s books, and place them in strategic locations to help promote literacy. This will be beneficial to children and parents.

2.  Create Story Strolls that will allow adults and their young children or grandchildren to combine literacy skills and healthy exercise as they skip, hop, and through reading stations of stories and other information. The Story Strolls can be placed in parks, libraries, or other areas. We present each book in both English and Spanish. Throughout the year, the stories will change.

3.  Create children’s book clubs.

4.  Create summer writing programs.

5.  Assess the need to build/or support small libraries in rural areas.

6.  We hope to make available children’s books in braille.

7.  We will help provide resources and foster relationships with schools, libraries, and other organizations.
