The mission of Better Basics is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their families by advancing literacy through enrichment and intervention programs.  Our programs provide literacy intervention and enrichment to elementary- and middle- school students throughout central Alabama. These programs ultimately increase confidence levels in children, infuse literature into children’s homes, and expose children to multi-cultural arts and enrichment programs. Through these early intervention programs, Better Basics hopes to increase the high s chool graduation rate in Alabama, create a well-educated workforce and decrease both the both the number of innmates in Alabama prisons and the number of welfare recipients.
