If you want to help children, invest in adult literacy
The single greatest indicator of children's success is the literacy level of their parents.More than 2.6 million adults in Florida -or- 20% of those 16 and older -lack the most basic reading skills.
Break the cycle of Poverty
- 43% of adults with the lowest literacy levels live in Poverty.
- 1 out 3 people in Ft Pierce and 1 out 6 people in Port St Lucie live in Poverty
- 30% of all children of St Lucie County were living in Poverty that same year.
Every Bid Counts! Thank you for helping us give others the gift of literacy.
