A Message from our CEO Literacy Coalition Recognized In Top 2% of Charities Nationwide



BooksCalderLeading through Reading has been the tagline of the Literacy Coalition since 2009. It represents that we are leading adults, children and families to gain literacy skills and empowering them to succeed in life as they embrace reading in their daily lives as students, employees, parents and citizens.

Through extensive outreach and collaboration with a network of community partners, the Literacy Coalition is working to address these needs with services by our Literacy AmeriCorps, Adult and Family Literacy programs and Children’s Literacy programs like Budding Readers, Reach Out and Read and Building Better Readers, which support our efforts with the National Campaign for Grade Level Reading.

We are excited to announce a fantastic event season to celebrate reading and support literacy. Please join us to be a part of this important chapter as we work toward improving the quality of life in our community by promoting and achieving literacy.
