When meeting families for the first time, rapid re-housing case managers provide each child with a book of their own that includes tips to help parents make reading part of their daily routine as a family. Through support of the Foundation, 330+ children participated in the Reading at Home Literacy program. Additionally, CBJ forward Patrik Laine donated $1,000 to the Community Shelter Board for every point he racked up during the 2022-23 season to provide much-needed resources for families facing homelessness in Ohio's capital city.
