Empowering People through Literacy

More than 20% of adults living in the U.S. read below the fifth grade level, and more than 40% of those with the lowest literacy rates live in poverty. Improving basic skills can have an immediate impact on employment opportunities and general quality of life. And although the federal government provides hundreds of millions of dollars for the effort, it's been estimated that all literacy programs combined serve only a fraction of those in need. The organizations listed below are working to improve literacy rates throughout the U.S., and they need your help.
