Our Mission

Everybody Wins DC (EWDC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving lives through shared reading.

The idea behind our mission is simple and straightforward, yet it brings about powerful change: by connecting a child with a caring adult over a book, Everybody's lives get better - Everybody wins!

Who We Serve
