Carstens Literacy Initiative

Serving the Children of Carstens Academy

We’d love to introduce you to our friend Mia. In 2nd grade she was reading at 2nd grade level. After 5 months of one-on-one mentoring twice a week, she was reading at a 4th grade level. She gained 2 years in 5 months.

Literacy matters and we at Hope House Detroit know the difference mentoring makes in reading, self-confidence, and personal growth. Christ Church has been invited to share in reading at Carstens!

We are looking for 50 committed reading friends on M/W afternoons and T/TH mornings to read with 2 children for 2 hours.

With your prayers and loving relationship and the SOAR model’s proven track record, our kids will be reading better than ever!
