"I know financial times are tough, but the work you do is invaluable. May Project Read continue to thrive." Abby - Tutor

Program Benefits
The generous support from individuals, businesses, organizations, and clubs allows us to provide free tutoring for adult learners so they are able to read books to their children, vote in elections, write checks, receive promotions at work, pass the GED, get their driver’s licenses, and the list goes on. These are skills they have learned and used for the very first time in their lives.
