The Literacy Coalition improves the quality and availability of literacy services and interventions in Central Texas.

The Coalition creates a more literate Central Texas by providing the resources necessary to address this under-funded network of vital programs. The Literacy Coalition connects literacy organizations in our region to the funding, advocacy, professional development and service support as well as operating its own instructional programming, including an adult learning center and multi-site parenting and ESL classes.
