Seeds of Literacy, an adult literacy organization offering free one-to-one GED and high school equivalency tutoring for adults in Northeast Ohio, received a $5,000 grant from the CareSource Foundation. The grant will be used to aid and expand programming.
The grant was awarded Nov. 14.
“Nearly 66% of adults in Cleveland are considered functionally illiterate, making everyday tasks such as understanding a bus route, reading the instructions on a medicine label or applying for a job online challenging, if not impossible,” Bonnie Entler, president and CEO of Seeds of Literacy, said in a news release. “This generous grant from the CareSource Foundation will allow Seeds to continue to provide the exemplary programming our students have come to expect and rely upon while expanding our efforts in other areas, such as our GED tutoring in Spanish.”
