Kristi's Always Dream Foundation focuses its efforts on promoting early childhood literacy. The foundation's "Always Reading" program works through local Title 1 schools to nurture an interest in reading by giving children in Northern California, Arizona and Hawaii easy access to print and digital books and e-tablets. Locally, The "Always Reading" early childhood literacy program currently serves 13 schools in the Bay Area, impacting 1,100 kindergarten students and their families.
