Transforming lives and communities
through the doorway of literacy.

Since 1964, Literacy Advance of Houston has assisted and empowered adults to achieve personal goals and self-sufficiency through improved literacy. Trained volunteer tutors help deliver a variety of free programs at three 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.

november is family Literacy Month

Literacy is crucially important for kids - but the job's only half done if we don't also provide literacy and English skills for parents and caregivers.

Celebrate Family Literacy Month throughout November and stay tuned for more on our new Parent & Caregiver Learning Pathway!

We're delighted and excited to let you know that we're opening a new chapter:

There are great things ahead!
