Pajama Program Reading Center/Atlanta is Now Open!
We’d love your support to be able to invite more children in Atlanta to participate in this very special reading experience!
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.
