Our Mission

RIF Chicago's oldest and largest children and family literacy organization in the state of Illinois. The mission of RIF in Chicago is to ensure that every child in the Chicago area has the opportunity to learn to love reading.

We do this by:
1) Providing children with opportunities to choose books to read and keep.
2) Providing programs and support to families so that they can facilitate the literacy of
their children.
3) Working together with other stakeholders in improving the educational and life
opportunities for children through literacy.

Join us in bringing the joy of reading to our most at risk children in Chicago!
