Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Dolly Parton Imagination Library

Dolly Parton and United Way's partnership has formed a vision to foster a love of reading among our Hernando Countys preschool children and their families by providing them with the FREE gift of a specially selected book each month. By mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, we want children to be excited about learning and to feel the magic that books can create. It is our mission as a community to ensure that every child can grow their very own library of books, regardless of their familys income. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (DPIL) drastically improves early childhood literacy for children enrolled in the program, and further studies have shown improved scores during early literacy testing as well.
