Read for Life

The Literacy Coalition is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2003. Our goals are to assist those with literacy-related challenges in finding the help they need, and to assist other members of the public in finding ways that they can help to address the needs of their neighbors and communities through volunteerism or donations.

The Coalition organizes public forums that bring together literacy and other educational providers to share information, to build relationships, to realize efficiencies, and to develop resources. Many of our past events are written up in the pages of the New Haven Independent. Follow our social media accounts for notice of upcoming events.
