We are firm believers in partnerships at Literacy Advance! Support from across the community, and partnerships with many different organizations and businesses, make the growth and success of our literacy programs possible.
We believe in the power of combining forces without duplicating efforts, and form effective partnerships with other agencies as we can, to mutual benefit.
In the past, partnerships have included the delivery of literacy classes and Family Literacy events at partner sites, but we made some changes starting in January 2018.
Currently the most common partnerships include referrals, training conducted by Literacy Advance staff for partner organizations, and invitations to experts at partner agencies to present on relevant and practical topics for our students.
Program Sponsors help make it all happen! We are very grateful for their ongoing assistance; their donations and support help sponsor interns, start new programs, extend our reach in the community and transform lives and communities through the doorway of literacy.
Literacy Advance is proud to be affiliated with, or accredited through, a number of other organizations. We thank these affiliates for their endorsement and support.

The MAM Network
MAM sees that each individual walking through the doors is strong. They may not realize it themselves, but they have the strength to ask for help and fight through their current crisis. MAM staff and volunteers do their best to ensure clients are able to move on from an immediate problem and work toward a bright future for themselves and their families.
