Wings of Spring: A Celebration of Literacy

Wings of Spring: A Celebration of Literacy has raised $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 this year's event raised almost $350,000 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 connect with their new community in a plethora of ways including improved job opportunities, communicating with healthcare professionals & schoolteachers, and becoming American citizens. With the help of more than 200 dedicated volunteer teachers, Literacy Achieves provides free educational programs for approximately 1200 adults and 400 children annually in three Dallas neighborhoods of critical need:
Vickery Meadow, West Dallas and East Dallas.
Together, we are making a direct and positive impact in our community by helping families achieve goals for a better life.
