Give the gift of literacy today and for the future.

Lincoln Literacy has continued to strengthen our community by teaching English Language and a variety of literacy skills to others for 50 years. Support of any amount will make a lasting difference today and every day by giving the gift of literacy. 

Our services change lives and give people the freedom to thrive in our community. We help our newest neighbors communicate in English and provide in-demand preparation for careers in healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, and education. We meet students where they are to assess and register them for classes, and also ask about their dreams.
