ADULT ILLITERACY affects us all, including you, right now and right here in BREVARD COUNTY.


  • There are an estimated 45,000 illiterate adults in Brevard County.
  • Illiteracy costs: In Florida $167M and nationally $225B in lost business productivity, unrealized tax revenues, social support, and law enforcement.
  • The Florida prison system estimates 60% of the incarcerated are functionally illiterate.
  • Those that receive literacy instruction are more than 50% less likely to return to prison than those that do not.
  • Illiterate parents are much more likely to raise illiterate children. Family literacy matters!
