According to the National Center for Family Literacy…
• Adults stay enrolled in family literacy programs longer than in most adult-only programs, and their attendance is higher.
• Children participating in family literacy programs made gains at least three times greater than would have been expected based on their pre-enrollment rate of development.
• Adults significantly improve their self-confidence, their confidence in their parenting abilities, and their employment status (by 29%).
• Children showed an 80% increase in reading books. They also make twice as many trips to the library.
