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.

We need your help!
Literacy Advance is in the running to win $5,000 from the Yelp Foundation.

Can we depend on you? $5,000 could do so much for our students and their families!
Please vote for us every day up until December 9. With your help, we can do it!
The gift of literacy is a gift of opportunity.
"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.
REALLY. YOU HAVE CHANGED OUR LIVES."
- Evelyn & Rafael, student speakers, November 2016
Please give the gift of literacy today. Help us reach our $50,000 year-end goal.
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.
Please help a student to find their voice.
