About DIBS for Kids

DIBS for Kids is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. We build software that supports teachers to send more books home with their students and, in turn, make significant literacy gains in the classroom. 

Our Mission locally is to support Omaha to become the nation’s first large, urban community to ensure that every child, regardless of income, has two things: (1.) Access to a great book to take home every night and (2.) A desire to read that book for fun as a path toward achieving third grade reading proficiency.

Our Vision is to bring in-home reading opportunities to all 46 elementary schools in the Omaha Public Schools district that have a poverty rate over 70%. We believe this would position Omaha as a national leader, taking a unique approach to improved literacy outcomes for students
