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.


story time

"Story Time" tours are a one-hour introduction to Literacy Advance. The tours are packed full of stories - stories of success, change, struggle, and transformation.

Do you have a friend or family member who might like to learn more about us? This is a great, low-key way to introduce them to the literacy need in Houston - and how we're all making a difference together.
