Welcome to our Blog

We intend to post blogs on this page that will help you understand the problem of low literacy skills in our community, links to additional information, tips, and resources for our tutors. We will also post updates and stories about our agency, our tutors, and our learners and how we are trying to improve literacy skills one adult at a time. The mission of the Literacy Coalition is simple: Improve Howard County through Literacy
