Nearly half of children in third grade are unable to read at grade level. Many of these adults and children who cannot read or write well desperately want to learn. Literacy AmeriCorps members address this need by teaching in family literacy and adult education programs to assist adults to learn English, serving as Graduation Coaches in local high schools with at-risk youth, and tutoring children in elementary schools, afterschool programs and libraries.

The board of trustees of Quantum Foundation, under the chairmanship of Ethel Isaacs Williams, recently approved nine new grants totaling more than $800,000 to Palm Beach County-based nonprofits. Quantum Foundation's mission is to fund initiatives that improve the health of Palm Beach County residents. In 1998, Quantum Foundation marked its rookie year as one of Palm Beach County's newest and largest philanthropic organizations with an impressive $7.6 million granted to more than 40 Palm Beach County projects. Twenty years later, with assets of approximately $150 million, the organization's focus remains on keeping Palm Beach County healthy. Their 20 years' worth of awards totals more than $140 million and has impacted hundreds of local nonprofit organizations. Every dollar the foundation grants continues to stay in the county to benefit local communities. The most recent cycle of grants focuses on better engagement in health, greater access to resources for health, and stronger connections for healthy communities. Of the nine grants allocated for the first quarter of 2019, $75,000 went to Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County (HFHPBC) to support their Western Communities Expansion Program, which will provide affordable housing for home ownership, home preservation and repair services, financial counselling, and other supportive services for families in the Glades area, as well as the creation of a Habitat satellite office in Belle Glade. This new and permanent presence will allow HFHPBC to contract with local vendors and hire local residents to help fulfill the mission of Habitat to build homes, communities, and hope for families in the Glades.
