Transforming lives and communities
through the doorway of literacy.

Since 1964, Literacy Advance of Houston has been assisting adults to achieve personal goals and self-sufficiency through improved literacy. Trained volunteer tutors help deliver a variety of free programs at multiple locations across the Houston area.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a United Way agency for more than 30 years, Literacy Advance is grateful for the widespread support of the Houston community, from our generous donors and supporters, to the volunteers who are at the heart of who we are and what we do.

Welcome, 2017!

A new year, like a new notebook, seems full of promise. What will be written on these blank pages?

We don't know what the future holds, but we're overjoyed to know you're beside us in this quest to bring literacy to people who need it. Literacy = opportunity, plain and simple. THANK YOU for giving opportunity to those who need it most!

And as we look back over 2016, celebrate these 10 WINS for Literacy - you helped them happen. We are so thankful for you!

Happy New Year from everyone at Literacy Advance.

"Everyone that comes to the United States, it doesn't matter what country they are from. All of them have voices. All of them have something to say, but they can't do it.

I used to be one of them. So now I would like to say 'Thank you so much for these classes.' Thank you so much for everything that you do to help people like Evelyn and me to have classes at Literacy Advance.


- Evelyn & Rafael, student speakers, November 2016

Please give the gift of literacy today. 

Your support can make it possible for the next Evelyn or the next Rafael to learn English, enter the workforce, improve their lives, and transform their families.

Will you help a student to find their voice?
