The Brunner Literacy Center is a welcoming place for adults to reach their educational dreams.
The Brunner Literacy Center provides tutoring in reading, writing, and math to adult learners over the age of 19 who want to achieve personal and professional goals, including:
Gaining a better job or a job promotion;
Helping their children with homework and/or other life skills;
Reading medical information correctly in order to avoid serious mistakes such as wrong dosages;
Being able to read news stories in order to discuss current events, sports, entertainment, and local issues;
Completing forms, various applications, questionnaires, and other documents.
The Brunner Literacy Center was established in 2011 by two Sisters of the Precious Blood congregation, founded by Maria Anna Brunner for whom the Center is named. The BLC relies heavily on the generous donations of corporations, foundations, and private individuals. With this support, staff and volunteers fulfill the Center's mission of helping adults learn to read, write, compute, and speak English.
Tutoring and other services, including books and materials, are provided without charge.
