GLP Attorneys Helps Support Reach Out & Read Programs at Confluence Health Clinics
“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It Does.” –William James
The Foundation is very grateful for a donation from GLP Attorneys that will help us fund Reach Out and Read Programs at eight Confluence Health regional clinics.
Reach Out and Read is a program that provides age-appropriate books to primary-care patients ages 6-months to 5-years at the start of a well-child check-up. This program has been adopted as a standard of care in pediatrics because it creates an opportunity for providers to assess the development of their patient and helps stimulate important discussions with caregivers about language and literacy.
About one-third of young children—and half of children living in poverty—in the U.S. arrive at kindergarten without the skills that they need to do well in school. Programs like Reach Out and Read help increase exposure to reading at an early age, which builds a foundation for success by promoting optimal cognitive and emotional development. GLP Attorneys approached the Foundation looking for a partnership that would have a positive impact on our region and Reach Out and Read seemed like a natural fit.
GLP Attorneys is a team of compassionate legal professionals committed to understanding the challenges of personal injury. The GLP Attorneys’ way is to collaborate with each client as we advocate to make a difference while providing the highest level of legal services. The road to recovery should not be travelled alone, which is why for over thirty years GLP Attorneys has creatively turned chaos into comfort and confidence across Washington State, one client at a time. Confluence Health’s Reach Out and Read program aligns with GLP Attorneys’ commitment to compassion, collaboration and creativity while supporting a “Time to Thrive,” one child at a time.
We feel fortunate to begin a new relationship with GLP Attorneys. Their team recognizes the importance of reading and literacy to the development and long-term health and wellbeing of children. We are so thankful for their support!
