The Literacy Situation
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, over 15% of people 16 years and older in Lancaster and Lebanon counties lack the basic literacy skills to be safe and productive in their lives.
We’re above the PA average — and not in a good way. The people in our counties deserve better. Please read through our site and learn how you can help, or get the assistance you need for yourself or someone important to you.
