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.

Can you tutor this fall?

new and improvedWe'll be helping more students than ever this fall - because Wilcrest is moving to a standardized schedule.

ESL classes will have concentrated start times in the fall and the spring, with a wider variety of options over the summer and less disruption over the holidays and new year. We're confident you'll see better attendance, more students finishing class, and a better use of classroom space.

Find out more here. And get in touch if you can volunteer as a tutor - classes are starting SOON!

We are Literacy Advance.

Literacy makes many things possible. A better job, a new home, more opportunities for kids.

And your gift makes literacy possible. Your donation today brings English skills to a new arrival in Houston; helps someone read who never thought they could; stops the cycle of low literacy by putting a brand new book in a child's hands.

Please donate today and start someone on their journey to a better life.
