Better Basics' mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their families by advancing literacy through enrichment and intervention programs. Incorporated in 1994, we currently provide our services to schools in Birmingham City and surrounding school systems. During the 2019-2020 school year, Better Basics served over 23,000 children, gave away over 47,000 books to at-risk children, and deployed over 1000 volunteers.
