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.

A Look into 2013
