OneStar:Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation-VOLUNTEERS
The Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation (BBHLF) mission is to improve the quality of life of Houstonians across all age groups through the power of literacy. Specifically, there are four categories of focus that include 1) children from birth to kindergarten, 2) children in kindergarten through third grade, 3) adolescents in grades four through 12, and 4) and adults. Each of these populations are effected by low literacy rates resulting in a crisis that Houston must tackle. To do this, we have worked with community stakeholders to create a Blueprint for Action for which we need VISTAs to help support and carryout.
