New Literacy Center

The Kalamazoo Literacy Council recently held an open house at its newest literacy center in Portage at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on Milham Avenue. As one of four tutoring sites located in the Portage area, the center offers tutoring in reading and writing, and also houses the ESL of Southwest Michigan program to serve adult learners who speak English as a second language. With the addition of this new center, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church has become the largest instruction site, serving more than 100 adult learners between the two programs.

At the open house, Mayor Peter Strazdas advocated for all Portage citizens to have literacy skills to be successful in life. ‚ÄúIn a city that prides itself on education, many residents struggle to read and write,‚ÄĚ said Mayor Strazdas. ‚ÄúVolunteer tutors are true heroes.‚ÄĚ Mayor Strazdas committed to working with the Kalamazoo Literacy Council to help the literacy centers in the Portage area continue to grow and serve area residents in need.

If you or anyone you know is interested in free reading and writing help or to serve as a volunteer, please call (269) 382-0490, ext. 222 or visit www.kalamazooliteracy.org.



We continue to support our Syrian refugee family. The Al Masaarini family, Maher, Walaa, their 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son, have been here since June. They spent 3-4 years in Jordan while going through the screening process before being allowed to enter the United States. 
We also help support other Syrian Refugees by collecting furniture and other household goods for our Refugee Closet. Prince of Peace works in unison with Samaritas and the Kalamazoo Islamic Center.
