1961, in response to their concern over the illiteracy rate among adults in the Dallas area, the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), Greater Dallas Section, founded LIFT. The goal was to create and support an organization that would offer free and easily accessible classes so that functionally illiterate adults could learn to read and write English. Since 1961, over 45,000 low-literate adults have learned to read at LIFT.

Today, we continue to grow that number, enhance lives and strengthen communities by teaching adults to read. LIFT serves over 5,000 learners with the help of over 330 volunteers.
