Did I scare you? No? Then how about this…

Over 80% of Literacy Council students live at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. That means they make less than $22,340 per year. Meanwhile, the median household income in Fairfax County is $106,000.

Now I’m really going to terrify you. The average monthly rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Fairfax County is $1,216 – which takes up over 65% of a learner’s income. Financial experts generally advise that you spend no more than 30% of your income on housing.

Did that send shivers down your spine?

Fortunately, these adults can get the help they need at the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia. LCNV changes the lives of over 1,500 adults each year, combining life-skills and workforce training to promote greater self-sufficiency.

But right now, 83 of your neighbors are waiting to be matched with an LCNV tutor.

Want to make life a little less frightening for these adults this Halloween? 

It’s easy to be a superhero for LCNV this Halloween – no costume needed!
