Blue Ridge Literacy

Did you know that the number of foreign-born individuals in the Roanoke Region has more than doubled in the past 15 years? Further, the recent refugees and immigrants have far lower rates of education, English speaking skills, and American citizenship than the immigrants pre-2000. This negatively impacts everything, from their ability to drive, to finding employment, to their likelihood of having health insurance.



There are also a number of American-born people in the region who were unable to gain the literacy skills they need to truly thrive in our society. In total, there are an estimated 25,000 functionally illiterate individuals in the Roanoke region alone!



The mission of Blue Ridge Literacy is to support the achievement of life goals by providing opportunities to strengthen literacy skills for adults in western Virginia.  To achieve that goal, we need your support!



Your donation will enrich individual lives through literacy, so individuals can achieve their life goals of employment, citizenship, college preparation, GED completion, and much more.  

Thank you for your generous support!
