Past Literacy Champions


2016 Gala


Corporate Honoree


Deutsche Bank’s commitment to supporting communities in the Americas focuses on shaping and supporting innovative strategies to address the needs of diverse underserved communities. During the past year alone, Deutsche Bank has been honored for its employee volunteerism, LGBTQ advocacy, commitment to ending hunger and homelessness, and much more. Deutsche Bank’s corporate citizenship activities focus on encouraging community development, promoting broad access to high-quality education, and fostering economic and social mobility for disadvantaged communities, well aligned with PCHP’s goals of ensuring that all children have the opportunity to enter school ready to thrive and that all parents are empowered to support their children’s academic and life success.


Deutsche Bank has been supporting PCHP’s work in the Bronx, New York, through PCHP partner agency Masa, Inc., since 2013, and through PCHP partner agency LEake and Watts, since 2016. Thanks to Deutsche Bank’s generous contributions, PCHP has been able to expand its work with both immigrant and homeless families, the most difficult to reach and most under-resourced families in New York City’s underserved communities.


Thank you to Deutsche Bank for its strong support for PCHP in New York City. Together, we are working to make a difference in the lives of thousands of New York’s most underserved families.


Literacy Champion


Masa, Inc. is doing such wonderful work in the Mott Haven community in the Bronx. Masa partners with Mexican and Latino children and families in the SOuth Bronx to develop strong learners and leaders who will fully participate in and contribute to the large community. Masa knows that in order to change outcomes for children, families are the key, and so they prioritize connecting parents with the tools and resources that will enable them to support their children’s learning at home.


As part of the Mott Haven Anchoring Achievement in Mexican communities network sponsored by Deutsche Bank, Masa is now in its fourth year of implementing the Parent-Child Home Program, providing intensive home visiting focused on building school readiness skills to 41 families.


Come inside the home of two-year-old Emely, a PCHP participant from Masa, as she reads and plays with her mom and their PCHP Early Learning Specialist. Because of PCHP, Emely is now fully engaged in learning language, using crayons, hearing stories, exploring, imagining, and doing all the learning children must do at age two if they are going to enter school ready to succeed.
