THE LITERACY COUNCIL
Thousands of adults in our area hide behind the guilt associated with illiteracy.
Others cannot speak the English language. Everyday activities like filling out
a job application, understanding pill bottle labels, and helping children
with homework become a daily struggle for adults with low literacy skills.
There is a direct link between low literacy skills and public assistance, which
includes children living in poverty. That is why The Literacy Council in Rockford
means so much to this area. Their mission is "empowering people to achieve."
The Literacy Council's adult tutoring programs are making a difference in
people's lives, and their services are available at no cost to those who need them.
