Everyone Needs to Read

Whether it is a job application, a medical form or simply a child’s homework assignment, it can be difficult to perform many necessary tasks without knowing how to read. Adult illiteracy is a growing problem in Kalamazoo County, but by working together we can begin to teach and empower our community.
