Transforming lives and communities
through the doorway of literacy.

Since 1964, Literacy Advance of Houston has been assisting adults to achieve personal goals and self-sufficiency through improved literacy. Trained volunteer tutors help deliver a variety of free programs at multiple 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.

Great thanks to our very first room sponsor!

Room sponsorship is an investment in our students and our daily activities, and we cannot thank you enough! Thank you for your continued support of our mission, transforming lives and communities through the doorway of literacy.

Thank you to Literacy Advance Board member Hannah Im for attending the check presentation ceremony and a special thanks to IACF Board member Bela Thacker; you are transforming the lives of Literacy Advance students!
