Some 32,000 Loudoun residents say they don't speak English well and over 30% do not speak it at home creating challenges for them and their children. Loudoun Literacy offers adult and youth classes with a focus on ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), the GED, citizenship, jobsite and financial literacy, health literacy, and school success (helping parents engage effectively with their children's teachers). Kids in Head Start and STEP receive literacy packs with new books (and tips for parents) and staff visit every Head Start classroom to read. Family Literacy Nights include dinner, literacy-related crafts, reading tips, a read-aloud for families, and books for children. Reading in homeless shelters, sharing books with those who lack access to them, and even creating baby book bundles for expectant and new parents, Loudoun Literacy takes a multigenerational approach to solving a critical problem.
