Literacy: How Adults Cope and Learn
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – Nearly half of adults living in the Cape Fear region cannot read at the high school level, and many of them are reading below the 5th grade level.
The Cape Fear Literacy Council works with these adults, teaching them to read and write.
