Your support positively impacts the lives of area adults functioning at low literacy levels.

1 out of every 3 adults in Florence County is functionally illiterate.  This means that they are unable to fill out a job application, read instructions on a prescription label, or help their children with homework.  Illiteracy not only creates a barrier for the illiterate adult, but also for their families, as illiteracy often passes from generation to generation.  ”.  The Florence Area Literacy Council offers classes for basic literacy, English literacy, the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) preparation and Pre-GED preparation.  Adult learners have the opportunity to work with a tutor, in small groups, as well as computer lab instruction ensuring that they receive the maximum benefit from their instruction time at the Council.

With your support....
The Florence Area Literacy Council is working to put an end to inter-generational illiteracy, poverty, unemployment and opening the doors of hope, achievement and independence.
