History
Literacy Works, Inc was established in 1989 by the Baltimore County Executive to coordinate, support and promote adult literacy programs and services in Baltimore County.  Since our inception we have:
1. Provided literacy instruction.
2. Offered volunteer opportunities for assisting adult learners in partnership with the Community College of Baltimore County.
3. Promoted the importance of providing and supporting adult and family literacy services.
4. Coordinated literacy services and programs.
In 1992, Literacy Works was incorporated and became a 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) non-profit organization. It established a Board of Directors in 1994.  The Board continues to be active in determining the programs and services offered and assisting with the fundraising endeavors.
Because of our success and recognition by the U.S. Department of Education for the programs in our Community Technology Centers, Literacy Works has expanded its services throughout Baltimore.  We provide services and/or consulting to any organization or agency who requests help in providing the best practices for any component of adult and family literacy programs.
