The READ Center is a community-based nonprofit organization providing classroom instruction, one-to-one tutoring, financial literacy, and health literacy to students who need to improve their literacy skills. Literacy is essential if we are to eradicate poverty, improve housing opportunities, stabilize families and communities, and create sustainable employment. Without literacy skills-- the abilities to read, write, do math, solve problems, and access and use technology-- today's adults struggle to take part in the world around them and fail to reach their full potential as parents, community members, and employees. Low literacy is the issue of our time. The READ Center believes everyone needs and deserves a literate life.
