Our agency opened its doors in 1980. In 1996, the organization’s directors sought non-profit status and became the community-based organization (CBO), Adult Literacy Lawrence County. Today we have a new name, Lifelong Learning Choices, that better represents who we serve and what we offer. Several members of the original board continue to serve. The agency began with a small grant that offered tutoring for adults who couldn’t read. Over the years the components have grown to meet the changing needs of the community, including ABE and GED®, family literacy, college prep and technology components. In the past year, over 180 adults participated in one or more of our program components. During the summer, over 100 families attend our weekly Wednesday’s Reading In The Park series at Cascade Park. The children have an opportunity to meet Flat Larry, the mascot of the Lawrence County Tourist Promotion Agency. Family members have an opportunity to learn more about community resources available to their families.
