Literacy Action Announces Closure, Concluding Impactful Journey

Dear Friends of Literacy Action,


Regretfully, Literacy Action (LAI), is closing its doors at the end of September 2023.


LAI has been dedicated to addressing the crucial need for adult literacy services within the greater Atlanta community. After serving

the Atlanta community for over 50 years, the decision to close LAI has not been an easy one.


We firmly believe that adult literacy services are crucial to our community. However, despite our best efforts to source long-term funding, we have been unable to establish sufficient, sustainable resources needed to support the organization’s critical mission of

Adult Basic Education.


We have chosen to close now, while an orderly winddown is still possible, and expect our closure to be complete by the end of

September. The Board of Trustees along with our Interim Executive Director are working closely with various partner organizations to help facilitate the transfer of our students and talented staff.


Our hope is that our efforts at Literacy Action ignited a spark for all that have been touched by the organization and made a lasting impact on the pursuit of our mission. We are infinitely grateful to our generous donors , enthusiastic volunteers, and dedicated staff who have supported us throughout the years.


We especially honor the adult learners who have lived our mission, choosing to show up every day and put in the work as

they transformed their lives, one word at a time. Each student is a walking testimony of the power of literacy and the true heart of our work.


Thank you for your understanding and support. It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye, but we are confident that our collective efforts will continue to shape the future of adult literacy.


With gratitude and hope,

The Board of Trustees, Literacy Action, Inc.
