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're looking forward to the Literacy Texas conference in early August! Literacy Advance staff Joe Wappelhorst and Kathryn Bauchelle have both been selected as presenters, and others from our team will also be in attendance.
Congratulations Computer Class Graduates!
These students have completed 100 hours of Computer Literacy, and we could not be prouder! See more photos from their graduation celebration on our Facebook page.
We have many people to thank for the success of this class! Thanks to the United Way THRIVE program, we were able to partner with the Mexican Institute of Greater Houston, who brought their highly regarded computer classes to Literacy Advance.
Ongoing supporter Cameron was instrumental in upgrading our computer lab in 2014, providing state-of-the art computers and other learning equipment.
Other supporters of Digital Literacy and Workforce Readiness at Literacy Advance include Bank of America, State Farm, The Hamill Foundation, and the Wayne Duddlesten Foundation.
