According to the National Adult Literacy Survey, approximately 44 million people in the United States cannot read well enough to fill out an application, read a food label, or read a simple story to a child.
We are very excited to announce that Literacy Volunteers of Sussex County has joined the merger of eight other adult literacy programs in New Jersey into one unified organization—Literacy New Jersey. We wholeheartedly believe that this merger of seven strong groups will enhance our ability to thrive and fulfill our mission in the years to come. We look forward to increased effectiveness, expanded capacity, greater financial strength, and the opportunity for more influential leadership as we advocate for and educate about adult literacy, together. The new name is Literacy New Jersey - Sussex County Programs.
