2021 Bridge the Gap campaign - Website homepage slider (1)

Many families in our community don’t know that they can access free education and support services that would make all the difference for their future.  This August we bring back the Bridge the Gap fundraiser to spread awareness of family support services because, like you, we believe that literacy can change lives.  

View the LQ Impact Menu below and partner with us to get our KidsQuest and Family Literacy programs the tools that students need to reach their educational goals.  Get to know some of the people impacted by these programs and learn how your long-term support can make a difference.

Caring for Kelly’s Granddaughters

“I want them to get all the help they need so they don’t have to struggle their whole lives.  I don’t want them to be at a disadvantage in life.  It makes me so happy to see them making strides.

– Kelly Carreon, KidsQuest Grandma


Kelly Carreon knew that her granddaughters, Lily and Ailee, already struggled so much with reading.  The support services they had been receiving for years at school weren’t helping and distance learning during COVID made it worse.  Kelly searched for tutoring specialized in learning disorders to help them catch up – Read her story to find out how it turned out.



Our board member will MATCH up to $1,200 of all monthly gifts during this fundraiser.

Ana Aims Even Higher

Don’t give up.  If you learn a word every day it is an achievement for your life and you should feel proud of yourself because it is never too late to learn something new.”

– Ana Iniguez


For Ana Iniguez, learning English was her focus as soon as she left Jalisco, Mexico in 2008.  She knew that it would be essential for her dreams of one day starting her own business, but more importantly, that she would be able to help her children with school, speak to their doctors and teachers, and help others like her looking for new opportunities in a new country.  She’s getting much more done…Read Ana’s Story
