Welcome to REACH-A-Child™

“Helping First Responders Comfort Children-In-Crisis”

Vision Statement

“The first response is a book to comfort a child-in-crisis” Is REACH-A-Child’s vision. Whether the children are in an automobile accident, victims of domestic disturbance or temporarily homeless, REACH-A-Child wants to help First Responders engage these children in a positive way through the power of a book.

“On behalf of the City of Madison Police Department, I want to thank the “REACH-A-Child” organization for your continued support. The backpacks and books available to children we encounter as first responders goes a long way to creating space from turmoil and fostering an opportunity for hope and help. With books, our officers can begin to build rapport and trust and kids can start to feel better about themselves or their situation.”

– Chief Michael Koval (Madison Police Department)
