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 for Houstonians and their families.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a United Way agency for more than 30 years, Literacy Advance joined Memorial Assistance Ministries’ network of programs and services in late 2018, expanding geographic reach and enhancing programmatic offerings to adult learners.


BakerRipley's Neighborhood Tax Centers are open now.
This year, there are 12 locations across Houston - including one at MAM main campus on Blalock.

The Neighborhood Tax Centers offer free, quality tax preparation - and every year, millions of dollars are returned to low-income families and the Houston economy.
