The single greatest indicator of children’s success is the literacy level of their parents.
- 43% of adults with low literacy skills live in poverty
- 36 million adults in the U.S. have low literacy skills.
Break the cycle of poverty:
Reach a child in need — Teach an adult to read.
You can help give the gift of a basic education to thousands of adults in our community. Your donation will help provide support and training to literacy tutors and give GED scholarships to low-income adults in Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington counties.
