June Newsletter 2022

Monthly Newsletters

Dear friends,

The momentum is absolutely incredible and we are beyond grateful for the opportunity to serve more children and their families.  This momentum is THANKS to the trust that YOU have placed in us!

It is definitely summer in Houston; the temperature, humidity, lighter traffic, pools and waterparks are open, and there is lots of talk about vacation plans. Many look forward to the summer as a time to relax and slow down a bit, but that’s not the case at Literacy Now…yes, our programs have wrapped up, but we are excited and busily making plans for the 2022-23 school year.

If you are a regular reader of our newsletter, and I hope you are, you know that we are in the midst of an ambitious expansion plan. We jumped in with both feet during the 2021-22 school year and increased our number of schools served by 50%. A daunting task for sure, and at times it was beyond challenging. Still, I am incredibly proud of and grateful for our amazing staff who gave it their ALL to make it a GREAT year for the children and families we served…great results from children who felt loved and valued and wonderful feedback from parents who felt empowered and supported. 

We absolutely could not do any of these things without YOU…whether you are a volunteer, donor, partner, or all these things, we are deeply grateful for your unrelenting support! To say that we are looking forward to the future is an understatement because it’s really more than that…we are excited, fired up, driven, and filled with passion and joy for the children and families we are privileged to serve.

Thank you for coming along with us on this exciting adventure; hang on because it’s getting to be quite the wildly exciting ride!
