I volunteered for this organization over the course of the past summer as a camp counselor. In my time there I was able to see the kids learning so much, whether it be coding or reading or writing or math skills. This organization is fully committed to both the well being of the children and creating a great learning environment for them to gain knowledge. It is also a great environment to encourage a love for learning through engaging activities instead of treating it mainly as an obligation for the kids.

Children Across America is a phenomenal non-profit that helps kids learn to read, helps with math, and now a stem program! It is run primarily by the CEO, Ray Fellows, and volunteers.
Mr. Ray, as the kids call him, has a passion like no other in running this program for the kids. Many parents have said this program has helped their kids in school so much! Mr. Ray, runs a Sat morning program during the school year, and recently just finished the Summer Program which was a great success! I've known Ray for a long time, and has seen the work he has put into this. Its exceptional! He goes all out for them, and commends their respect. It is in the center of Milford, MA right in the middle of the community. These kids are our future!! A fantastic program! and its free.

The mission of Children Across America of helping children improve their literacy levels and develop a life-long love for learning, is one of the most impactful to really help children in underserved communities to raise out of poverty and not only dream of a great future, but make it a reality by giving them the tools that they need to succeed in their education and in their growth as individuals.
The passion and selflessness of their team is contagious, and children and their families don't need to pay a dime to take advantage of the many services received.

Children Across America is an awe-inspiring organization to be a part of. I feel incredibly honored to serve as a board member to help further our mission of ensuring children in low-income families are gaining the literacy and leadership skills they need to succeed in school and in life by giving them the tools necessary to live joyful, healthy, and confident lives. Children Across America encourages students from underserved families to become the best versions of themselves and grow into the leaders of tomorrow.

Children Across America's focus on helping children achieve the best version of themselves is unvaluable. Literacy (reading and maths) and health tips help these kids and families from very diverse backgrounds and etnicies be competitive, be ready to succeed. I admire the dedication of this non-profit and their generosity with everyone who wants to take advantage of the programs they offer. A big round of applause for such wonderful initiative!

CAA has helped 100s of children who are struggling in school to develop their English skills and improve their testing grades. Their services are free and the kids seem to enjoy the process. The staff is wonderful and very good with the children.As a parent, I appreciate their "safe Harbor" policy of all children needing at least 2 adults to supervise them. That gives me peace of mind that the childrens safety is their foremost concern.

I believe that Children Across America gives children from all walks of life, including underserved children, a sense of community and proven support for their development. Children Across America is the kind of organization I can be proud to support and associate with. I've winessed the on-site client services wherein a family with children comes in and the staff helps them navigate the healthcare system and/or offers preventative health services and early educational support. The ongoing programs focused on those same goals are very impressive and it is comforting to know that these kind of free services are available in a community.

CAA is a great organization with an admirable goal. During the short period of time that I have been involved I can see the passion instilled by everyone involved.

My experience as a board member for Children Across America has definitely been positive. As a public employee, I serve on several other boards and use my connections to spread the good word about all of the initiatives offered by our organization to the children and families of our town and local vicinity. Strengthening and supporting health and literacy for our children is going to build stronger families and better communities.

I have been involved with Children Across America for the past 2 1/2 years. As the prior Associate Executive Director/Director of Development and now on the Board as the Director of Florida Operations, I have seen and experienced the growing pains of a start up organization yet the DEDICATION and DETERMINATION of the Board and our staff of Volunteers to provide FREE programs that address the needs of children and their families in the Blackstone Valley area of Mass. has been powerful. I have witnessed the families seeking assistance I have heard the "thank you's". I believe in Children Across America and the work being done to invest in children.... America's future.
