Founded in 2007, REACH-A-Child, Inc. (REACH), works with First Responders across the state of Wisconsin to provide the necessary tools to reach children in crisis situations -- a book that is age-appropriate.* These books redirect the child's attention from the crisis at hand and allows them an emotional escape from their fears. Whether the child is in an accident, a victim of a domestic disturbance, or going through a trauma, the power of a book and a positive interaction with a First Responder can go a long way towards "making things right" again.
*Children, ages 2-12 years-old are served by this program.
