We believe literacy
is a human right.
TEXAS HAS A BIG WORD PROBLEM.
1 in 5 adults in North Texas cannot read. This means that more than 800,000 adults in Dallas County alone are struggling with literacy and that number is projected to grow to more than 1 million by 2030.
LIFT IS BENDING THE TREND.
We are reaching into the neighborhoods where people live, work and worship. By teaching adults to read, we increase access to employment, reduce reliance on social services and improve the quality of life for our students and their families.
THE TIME IS NOW. JOIN US.
Become a volunteer, supporter or join our strong network of community partners. Stand with us as we Bend The Trend.
