Our social impact is results. Since reopening from COVID in May 2021, Shelby Literacy Center has seen 100 adults improve their language by at least one level. Twelve children have improved their reading level by at least one grade over 12 sessions, changing their trajectory in school towards success. Shelby Literacy Center knows there are many ways to spend philanthropic dollars, and we use those dollars to complete our mission of empowering individuals and enriching communities through literacy.
