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.
Thank you for your support in 2018!
Your support has opened doors for another year - doors to workplace success, family prosperity, and a better Houston. You've made learning, security, and progress possible - and we're looking forward to 2019 with you by our sides.
Thank you for all you do!
