About Us

“When a child reads, a community succeeds!”


Right now, 3 out of 4 students living in poverty leave 3rd grade reading below grade level. This can translate into a lifetime of struggle. To change this, Literacy Inc. (LINC) employs an innovative strategy that unlocks the power which already exists within every community: bit.ly/2MQ6Yok


LINC builds partnerships between families, educators and community stakeholders, creating neighborhood networks that surround children with books and fun, skill-building reading opportunities. LINC grows the early habits of reading that are vital to ensuring a child’s future success, in school and beyond.
