Formal education isn’t always an option for Latino immigrants, especially adults.

Loudoun Literacy Council
The Loudoun Literacy Council is celebrating 20 years of promoting family literacy this year! We were delighted to share insights into the program with our donors, volunteers, and community partners recently. Here’s what 20 years of family literacy programming has meant for Loudoun:
• 3,000+ families have benefited from our literacy programs through Head Start and STEP over the past 20 years. We have grown from serving 158 preschoolers from low-income families in 1998 to 400 preschoolers this year.
• 600+ families have participated in our Sweet Dreams homeless program over the past 13 years.
• 1,200+ new moms have received their first baby books through our Baby Book Bundles program.
• 30,000+ books have been distributed to low-income families through our community partnerships.
Thank you to everyone who has made our work possible over these years. Special thanks to Chang Liu and the Loudoun County Public Library System, Lynn Tadlock and the The Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, Amy Owen and the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties, and Charisse Rosario with the LCPS Head Start Program. We look forward to another wonderful 20 years of improving the literacy of Loudoun’s children and their families!
The FY19 appropriations bill includes a $25 million increase for WIOA Title II, Adult Education and Family #Literacy Act. Because of the important #advocacy work done by programs like yours and other supporters, this bill has passed!
We encourage you to contact your representatives and senators to thank them for this increase, and urge them to continue supporting adult education. Search for your reps at https://bit.ly/1TFDnvM.
The bill is expected to be signed into law by the president within the next 2-3 days.
