Thank You!

Thank you for generously supporting the Literacy Center during Omaha Gives! Your gift allows us to support adults in our community as they strive to improve their lives through education. With your gift, we can continue to provide much needed GED, ESL, and adult basic education classes free of charge to people like Kristina.

Kristina decided in 2015 she wanted to get her GED so she could go to college and become an addiction and mental health counselor. The Literacy Center gave her an opportunity to attend free GED classes as well as provided a one-on-one tutor for math and science. Kristina worked hard and passed her final GED test this February. She is already registered for her first college class this summer!

Your gift matters to the more than 500 adults who attend classes at the Literacy Center. Thank you for supporting the Literacy Center and our mission. You are welcome to stop by anytime and see your gift in action!
