OUR HISTORY

Our organization has come a long way since we were founded in 1986 as a prison ministry called The Sioux Falls Area Literacy Council.  Since that time, the mission to teach adults to read, write, and improve life skills has evolved into what it is currently - to empower adults and children to thrive through literacy education

Evolving the mission allows our organization to increase the reach and impact of our literacy partnerships and expand the scope of our literacy programming.  In 2014, The Sioux Falls Area Literacy Council changed its name to REACH Literacy to reflect how we are now reaching an even broader community across the Sioux Empire.
