GET INVOLVED

Our vision is 100% literacy in the Mid-South.

Literacy Mid-South (LMS) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide literacy resources to learners of all ages and backgrounds. Somewhere between 20% to 30% of adults in the Memphis metro area are functionally illiterate. That means more than just unemployment — their minds are unused and their dreams are unrealized.
