IS YOUR LITERACY PROGRAM ON THE MAP?
One of the jobs that keeps the TCALL staff busy is
operating a toll-free hotline that – among other things
– is used by adult learners who call from all over Texas,
looking for a literacy program in their area. Perhaps
it's a function of higher unemployment, but program
referrals have more than
doubled each of the past
How does TCALL know
where to refer callers for
literacy services? We
maintain a Statewide Directory
of Adult & Family
Literacy Providers in a
variety of nonprofit settings. The database is housed on
TCALL's website, found under the menu link called Provider
Directory. The Directory can be searched by city,
county, program type or type of literacy service, among
other criteria. An interactive map feature also allows you
to search the Directory by county.
As of this writing, 431 literacy providers are included in
TCALL's Directory. Those include providers that receive
federal or state adult education funds through Texas
Education Agency, as well as volunteer and community-based
programs that receive no government funds.
Over 100 of the community-based literacy programs in TCALL's Directory are housed in a church or other religious organization.
We appreciate your help making sure our Directory includes emerging literacy providers, and with keeping your literacy program's information current.
If you notice that your program's information is missing or incorrect, please call 800-441-7323 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Get your program "on the map" so TCALL can send adult learners to you for services.
