Who We Are

The Literacy Coalition is a not for profit organization committed to ensuring that every resident of Palm Beach County, Florida is able to read. Our philosophy is best expressed by Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations:

“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope… (it is) the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential.”

Mission

The mission of the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County is to improve the quality of life in our community by promoting and achieving literacy.

Our goal is to ensure that every child and every adult in Palm Beach County can read.

Whom We Serve

We Serve:

  • The mother who can’t read a letter sent home by her daughter’s teacher.
  • The worker who claims he left his glasses at home rather than admit he can’t read the instructions left by his boss.
  • The preschool child who lives in a home that doesn’t contain a single book.
  • The family who lives in poverty because the parents don’t have the literacy skills to qualify for a job that pays a family sustaining wage.
