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.
Thank you to one of our newest partners! Bank of America partners with Literacy Advance to provide work readiness and family literacy in Houston. They help make our work possible. Find out how.
You helped us reach our 50th Anniversary!
2014 marked a wonderful celebration in our organization’s history: Literacy Advance turned 50!
In 1964, Literacy Advance was created as a community-based agency, with neighbors helping neighbors. It's only because of people like you – along with other volunteers, donors, and supporters – that Literacy Advance has been able to keep providing vital literacy skills to adults and families in Houston.
We celebrated our 50th Anniversary at a special fundraising event: our Opening Opportunities Breakfast on November 7 at The Junior League of Houston. Thank you to all our friends and supporters who joined us there!
