Social services and other support for low- and moderate-income, homeless or at-risk individuals.
What does it mean for a nonprofit to be CRA aligned?
Each nonprofit on Community Qualifier has been reviewed by findCRA utilizing a dual evaluation process. Nonprofits are first evaluated by our proprietary algorithm, CRANIA, and then further validated by our CRA experts. When nonprofit passes both parts of this review, we create a nonprofit profile for them on Community Qualifier. From there, a nonprofit can claim their profile and add additional information including their programs & services, counties served, targeted clients and income groups and more.

STORYTIME PROGRAM
The Books for Kids Story Time Program brings together volunteers and individuals such as from community members, retired librarians, corporate volunteers, and early childhood literacy experts who work with the children in our libraries to deepen their literacy experience. From puppet shows and sing-alongs to literacy-based arts & crafts, and group readings, all our activities bring books to life. We make learning fun and help build the critical early literacy skills our children need to be successful in life. *Select locations listed in bold in “Where this nonprofit helps” section.

LENDING LIBRARIES PROGRAM
The Books for Kids Lending Library Program encourages and assists preschool-aged children to check out library books from the Books for Kids library on site at their preschool or daycare center. Books for Kids helps children and teachers learn the lending process so that each child can have a new book to bring home with them each week. We also encourage teachers to use the library and books to assist with their curricula and lesson plans. Our goal is to have teachers learn and become comfortable with the lending process to be able to run this program on their own.
