Your Generosity Makes A Difference

Your gift to the Delaware County Literacy Council (DCLC) helps local adults to gain the skills they need to get a job, keep a job, become citizens, read to their children, and take charge of their lives.

The Literacy Council's services are free to eligible adults. Through your generosity, we are able to purchase books for our new adult readers, purchase much-needed audio-visual equipment, and undertake building and classroom improvements.

DCLC serves adults in Southeastern Pennsylvania, specifically in Delaware and Montgomery Counties.
