Every call is different. One caller might be asking for help with reading, another might be asking for help to speak English. The next might be a adult struggling with the secret of being illiterate. We might not be able to solve all their problems, but we do provide a soothing voice and a caring ear - and before the call ends, the individual calling will have the help they need, that is our mission.


Thank you for helping to raise $9635! Our sincere appreciation to Jersey Mike's and all their customers.
