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.

October is Health Literacy Month

You may be astonished to learn that only 12% of adults have proficient health literacy. This means that the vast majority of adults lack the skills needed to manage their health and prevent disease.

Read more here, and help us promote good health literacy throughout October.

The results are in - and we're celebrating!

Your kindness has raised over $25,000 for literacy and language classes at Literacy Advance. We think that's amazing!

And your generosity is making an immediate difference to Houston families. Moms and dads are learning the language they need to talk to their child's teachers. Job-seekers are creating their first U.S.-style resumes and practicing interviews for their first Houston job.

Your support is giving your newest neighbors the confidence that they can make a real home here, and that they truly belong.

That's all thanks to YOU.
We are so very grateful.
