Adult Literacy


There are several local resources that offer assistance to adults in this very important area. Many of these resources offer services to adults free of charge. Making that first step to improve literacy skills can be a difficult one for adults. Become a “Reading Buddy” for a friend or relative and help them make that first step. The following local organizations offer assistance to persons who want to improve their reading, writing and math skills.
