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.
Literacy changes lives.

This beautiful handmade quilt (more pics here) was made especially for this year's Scrabble in the City event by Sandy Keane. It's displayed here by her husband, Terry (volunteer tutor) and daughter Heather (Wilcrest Program Manager) so you can see the Keane support of Literacy Advance is truly a family affair.
Anyone at Scrabble in the City on September 14 will have the opportunity to place a bid on this gorgeous piece of work, as it will be part of our silent auction. But you have to be in it to win it! If you haven't got your tickets yet, there's still time... but time's running out. Click here, or call 713.266.8777 to get your team locked in now!
Huge thanks to Sandy, and all our Scrabble in the City supporters! Your sponsorship helps students like Evelyn, who's improved her English skills, learned more about computers, and transformed her life and that of her family.
