Literacy Services is reimagining what literacy is and what it can be! Thanks to your financial support and your gifts of service during our 2018-19 year, our students not only built literacy skills, but also completed college/vocational training, gained high school credentials, and elevated their workplace skills. Importantly, by reaching toward these goals, the students’ families are enriched and our community is strengthened.
Our definition of Literacy is broad and far-reaching, highlighting how interconnected adult literacy is with all areas of growth and success for individuals, families, and communities. The impact of our mission extends throughout our community, and we strive to demonstrate this in increasingly visible ways. Thank you for investing in an inspiring future for our students who are committed to life-long learning. In the following impact measures, we hope that you’ll find that our performance exceeds your expectations for your investment.
Thank you for your support!
