Business Community Partners

Our Business Community Partner Program was created in 2007 to recognize and sustain the efforts of our league of volunteers, staff and contributors from key corporations in the community. During these challenging economic times, it is more crucial than ever to partner with our community leaders.

The ongoing financial support of our Business Community Partners, along with professional services from our Business Service Partners totaling in the tens of thousands, enable Literacy Advance to continue to transform lives and communities in Houston through the doorway of literacy.

If your business would like to learn more about our Business Community Partner Program, please contact Acting Executive Director Melanie Fisk at 713-266-8777.
