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.

Join us now!

Addressing the literacy need in Houston is a big job, but you can help Literacy Advance meet that need by telling others what we’re doing, and connecting us with interested people.

Our Ambassador program is a short-term volunteer opportunity for someone who is committed to introducing our organization to others through our Story Time Tours.

Story Time Tours celebrate the great impact our Ambassadors have on our students. Learn more about our Story Time Tours right here on our website.

If you find yourself thinking “How could I help?” then let’s talk. Contact Cary Duval at 713.266.8777 or
