Our mission is to empower adults and improve communities through literacy. One in five adults in our area are unable to read which greatly affects them on a daily basis. Adults who struggle with reading may also struggle with their health, employment, and aiding their children in school. Low literacy rates are linked to higher poverty levels, poorer health, an increased crime rate, and lower levels of success for children whose parents cannot read.By challenging yourself with this triathlon, you are helping adults and their families rise to the challenge by breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. On behalf of the board, staff, volunteers, and students of OFLP, we thank you!
