We change lives, families, and communities by tutoring adults to improve their ability to speak,
read, and write English.

 The ability to communicate effectively in English is critical to personal freedom, economic betterment, and the maintenance of a democratic society in the United States.

Strengthen your child's future

A mother’s reading skill is the greatest determinant of her child’s future academic success—even more important than family income.

Grow and be well

If all adults read at a 6th grade level or higher, they’d be healthier, and our economy would be $2.2 trillion larger.

We’ve helped thousands of immigrants
and native speakers

Since 1978, Literacy Suffolk has helped thousands of immigrants from 47 countries with basic conversational English and native speakers with reading and writing.


Save the date for our Fall Fundraiser- Sunday October 22nd at 89 North.

Thank you, Saint James Brewery New York for hosting us and donating to our raffle. Special thank you to Malissa Harrison Mangogna and Samantha Varone for contributing their ideas and time to make this event possible.   Raising money was great, but the connections made are priceless. It’s not always easy raising money for adult literacy; thank you to those who understand the importance and volunteer their time and contribute monetarily.
