We believe that all adults have the right to literacy. We work with adults to help them achieve the ability to read, write, and speak English; and understand and use information to make decisions about their lives. Literacy gives adults the tools they need to care for their families, maintain employment, avoid poverty, understand health information, get involved in the community, access further education, and more.
