On the San Mateo County coast, the La Honda-Pescadero community serves families of La Honda, Loma Mar, Pescadero, and San Gregorio. The La Honda-Pescadero community is proud to be engaged with The Big Lift to provide high-quality preschool, summer, attendance, and family engagement programming to support closing the achievement gap.
The Big Lift transformed home literacy practices in our community by promoting the importance of reading at home from the earliest ages.
