WHO WE ARE
A small, literacy-focused, non-profit organization affiliated with United Way and located in Jackson County, Indiana.
WHAT WE DO
Our mission is focused on increasing literacy of adults and children in our community. Through various programs, we hope to improve participant's lives with increased job skills to help find gainful employment, English language classes to communicate effectively, and book giveaways and Little Libraries to make books available to anyone to wants or needs them. To encourage literacy from birth, we give a new board book and a blanket to all babies born at Schneck Hospital in Seymour, IN. #literacybeginsatbirth. Additionally, to help create lasting bonds with foster parents and children in their care, we give new foster children a cool duffle bag, a new pair of pajamas, and story book. Also in 2021, to assist area elementary school children struggling in reading, we are endeavoring to have reading tutors in place at local after school programs for students reading 12-18 months below grade level in 3rd grade.
We are building a future in which more people can navigate the world with dignity.
