Our name is who we are: Families & Literacy, Inc. By “Breaking the Chain” of illiteracy, we strengthen the bonds of families and connections to the community. Teaching adults to read and become more proficient in English provides these benefits:

  • Helps strengthen child/parent interaction
  • Helps raise the esteem of adults
  • Helps individuals move up in jobs
  • Helps people start businesses
  • Helps create a literate workforce
  • Helps change children’s perceptions of their parents, their families, and most of all, themselves

Together, we can turn the “chain of illiteracy” into a “lifeline of potential.”
