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.

Congratulations new graduates
So much to celebrate!
We finished our spring semester with a flourish, as 20 students graduated from Advanced English, the highest level of ESL class offered at MAM.
We are so proud of our most recent graduates, who dedicated many months - and in some cases years - to their English studies and who persevered through every obstacle.
Your support and dedication helped get these students past the finish line! Your donations of time and money underpin every class we offer, and this graduation is only possible because of friends like you.
