National Center for Families Learning awarded Library of Congress American Prize for Literacy

“It is an honor for the National Center for Families Learning to be recognized by the Library of Congress among many outstanding organizations,” Darling said. “Every day across the country parents are experiencing hope and optimism for their futures because they are gaining valuable literacy and employability skills that empower them to contribute to their communities and achieve economic self-sufficiency through the NCFL Family Learning model. Children are seeing their parents work hard and reap the benefits. NCFL is seeing families lift themselves out of poverty, breaking a long-standing cycle. This award represents our efforts but the honor belongs to the millions of families who have taken ownership to improve their own lives over the past 28 years.”
