Completing a job application. Updating your child’s medical forms. These are everyday things that can feel mundane, and yet can be overwhelming for an adult who struggles to read and write. According to the most recent data from the National Center for Educational Statistics, nearly one in ten adults in Wexford, Missaukee, Lake, and Osceola counties lack basic literacy skills. It is the goal Cadillac Area Adult Literacy Council to assist these individuals in obtaining the English language skills they need to improve their daily life, while also strengthening our community.
