Resource Guide for Family Literacy Programs.
Seaman, Don F.; Alagaraja, Meera; Earhart, Stella
This resource guide aims to assist local Texas family literacy projects in acquiring resources to better serve their clients in the areas of adult literacy education, early childhood education, parent education, and learning disabilities. Funding resources--corporate and foundation-- are listed. Each area is approached from national, state, and local levels. Section 1 contains resources provided at the national level and further categorized under resources for multiple activities, adult education, early childhood education, parent education, learning disabilities, and corporations and foundations. National resource providers serving more than one category are listed separately as resources for multiple activities. Organizations are presented in charts with this information: name; address; web site address or telephone number; and resource outline. Although foundations and corporations are national in scope, wherever possible, their Texas addresses are incorporated. Section 2 identifies state agencies and regional educational service centers and resources/services they provide; web sites are included for adult literacy education, early childhood education, and parenting and family literacy. Section 3 lists local organizations/agencies and possible resources for adult education; early childhood education; and parenting education. Other community resources that are possible partners are listed. A final list identifies community foundations located in Texas; address and telephone number or web site address; and brief summary.
