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 at three 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.

are you ready for hurricane season?

It's hard to believe, but we're in Hurricane Season again. Hurricane Season is June 1 - November 30 every year, and we want all our students to be prepared.

We're planning a series of Weather Preparedness classes over the early months of summer - we hold these classes every year, but with Harvey fresh in everyone's minds, we'll have more on the calendar than ever. 

Find class information here.

Celebrating Immigrant Heritage

June is Immigrant Heritage Month, and as a nation built by immigrants, we believe that's worth celebrating!

Immigrants bring much richness to our society.  From business entrepreneurship to inventions to sports to food, immigrants make their mark every day.

And at Literacy Advance, one of our greatest joys is to help immigrants who are eager to learn English, support their families, and to become part of their new homeland and contribute to its success.
