Opening Soon: Pajama Program Reading Center/Atlanta
Grand Opening this Spring!
ajama Program understands deeply how many children in this country don’t have a stable home life, or a home at all. To these children — often abandoned, neglected, living in shelters or temporary housing — we pledge our unwavering commitment to the inherent right of every one of them to have a loving bedtime and restful good night as the start of a positive, empowering good day.
Pajama Program Reading Centers lay the foundation for a good night. Led by our dedicated staff and volunteers, each Reading Center offers a variety of programming for children from preschool through high school. Younger children enjoy our popular Reading Parties, where they are paired with an adult volunteer to spend a magical hour reading together. This is a time of unconditional love and individual attention from a caring adult. Following a healthy snack at the end of the hour, we hold a small ceremony where each child is presented with a pre-selected new pair of pajamas tied in ribbon with their name. Showered with applause, the child feels special. And before leaving, each child is invited to select a new book from our bookshelves, as our gift.
