Literacyworks and COTS
Literacyworks assisted in starting the new COTS (Committee on the Shelterless in Petaluma) Family Literacy program by providing resources and training for volunteers and staff. Primarily through special programming, story-times, and other interaction with the families, COTS volunteer tutors and staff members demonstrate and model reading aloud and support parents in their role as their child's first teacher.
In a continuing effort to break the cycle of low literacy, the mission of COTS Family Literacy program is to offer coordinated early-literacy services to families that include an adult caregiver and at least one school age child. Literacyworks will continue to provide support to help this wonderful program grow. We hope to also assist COTS to starting an adult literacy program next year.
