Fund Story

The READ La Porte County, Inc. Literacy Fund was started in 2008 by caring board members with a mission to help increase reading, math, English and digital literacy skills in the community through tutoring and through advocacy.

Students come from all walks of life, representing a wide variety of ages, ethnicity, socioeconomic backgrounds and skill levels. They strive to reach a broad range of goals that include everything from improving grades at school to learning computer skills to passing the citizenship test.
