Below Grade Level Readers Need Help

My Story:

I am a single mom, a service connected veteran, and still currently on active duty. Due to a divorce and me being deployed for the war, the early years of my children life I know I did not read to them as much as they needed and help them with the basics reading skills.

Things have settled as much as it can for a single Army mom but I now have a 4th grader who is a below grade level reader and a 6th grader who test out as average but I know struggles with his daily assignments. I have found a summer reading program that I feel will improve comprehension, fluency, and reading speed. I am seeking grant monies to pay for the summer reading program. I have no additional funds to pay for the reading program. I am not even sure how I am going to pay for summer camp so I can go to work let alone pay for the reading program.

I do feel getting my children help is a must do. This is an unusual bill that I did not have money for but feel is necessary for the wellness and qualify of life of my children. This program will be instructed on Sundays and will no interfere with my work. I thank you for considering my application.
