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.

neighborhood tax centers now open

We love BakerRipley's amazing Neighborhood Tax Centers. They put literally MILLIONS of dollars back into the Houston community through their free tax services every year.

Find locations and other info here. Paper copies of this flyer are available now at all Literacy Advance sites, so please spread the word - to students, friends, and family!

Sending out love to you!


As we reflect on the year just past, we can't do anything but conclude that friends of Literacy Advance have simply the biggest hearts in the world.

Do you know that you got 1,400 people into class in 2017? Just stop for a moment and think about those 1,400 people - with 1,400 families - all striving and achieving and moving ahead to bigger and brighter things.

Because of YOU.

Literacy Advance will turn 55 next year. As we look back over decades of dedication, we know that it's volunteers like you who have got us to where we are today. heart

And all we can say is thank you. Our hearts are full!
