Cape Fear Literacy Council

Mission
To provide personalized education so adults can transform their lives and contribute to a stronger community.

Vision
A community in which all adults have the literacy skills they need to succeed.

History
In 1970, the Wilmington Literacy Group was a volunteer mission project of the Wilmington Baptist Association. Over time, this grassroots outreach expanded to meet the needs of our community and in 1984 The Cape Fear Literacy Council was officially founded. It was run by volunteers and one VISTA worker, founding director Billie Granger. By 1985 the Cape Fear Literacy Council was officially chartered as an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

For 36 years, CFLC has recruited, trained, and certified more than 2,000 volunteer tutors. These tutors, in turn, have donated hundreds of thousands of hours to help thousands of adult learners throughout the Cape Fear region.
