Wings of Spring: A Celebration of Literacy

Wings of Spring: A Celebration of Literacy has raised nearly $3 million to provide free education and life-skills programs to thousands of immigrant and refugee families across Dallas.
We are thrilled to report that last year's event raised approximately $450,000 to fund our core mission of Changing Lives Through Literacy.
We are grateful for the generosity of our donors and volunteers. Because of their support, we are able to continue providing award-winning Adult English Literacy and Early Childhood Education and Student Services Programs. These vital programs empower immigrant and refugee families to improve their lives and become self-sufficient members of our community. With the help of more than 200 dedicated volunteer teachers, Literacy Achieves provides free educational programs for approximately 700 adults and 200 children annually in three Dallas neighborhoods of critical need:
Vickery Meadow, West Dallas and East Dallas. 
Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our students, their families, and the greater community.
