Celebrating 30 Years of Supporting Houston's Literacy Providers


Make a Contribution to Houston's literacy today

Did you know Houston Center for Literacy will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2014?

Over the past three decades, our organization has worked toward building a stronger, more literate Houston by supporting our coalition membership, engaging the community and connecting learners with the education they need to succeed. This year, we launched the Texas Family Literacy AmeriCorps Initiative in Houston, partnered with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation on the Houston Literacy Campaign, piloted the Texas Online Learner Database (TOLD), began working on a research project with the Bush School at Texas A&M University...the list goes on. We can only continue to do this good work with your support, so today, we hope you will consider making a contribution to our Literacy Fund.

Your donation can do things like:

  • Cover the cost of supplies for one of our Demonstration Learning Centers
  • Pay for literacy volunteer training
  • Support family literacy services
  • Underwrite essential learning materials for our member organizations
