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.
Congratulations Award Winners!
We were overjoyed to see TWO of the Literacy Advance family honored at the recent Literacy Texas conference. Long-time volunteer tutor Frances (left) was awarded Volunteer of the Year, and English learner and volunteer Alina (right) was awarded Adult Learner of the Year.
Congratulations to both these wonderful women! Frances has given to the students of Literacy Advance for years, in the form of volunteer tutoring and her very popular book club. Alina has made quick progress in her English learning and later became a Literacy Advance volunteer, so that she could give back in the place where she had received so much. Send your congratulations to Frances and Alina on our Facebook page.
Thank you Literacy Texas for recognizing these two amazing ladies!
