Today, 4 out of 10 Texans struggle with literacy.
Imagine the challenges they face going through daily life, trying to fill out applications, reading safety manuals, menus, prescriptions, instructions, signs, maps and so many other things the rest of us take for granted.
Now imagine the cost society must bear in terms of healthcare, social services, the criminal justice system, the economy, all of us our paying because our schools have failed these people. Imagine now all the things we could achieve if everyone could read, the society we could have.
In today’s world no adult should have to struggle with basic literacy and we’re here to see they get the help that they need.
