Welcome to the Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition’s website.

NWILC is happy to be entering the next era of direction and activities.  We hope you will find our changes refreshing and we welcome suggestions for our activities and improvements to the coalition.

Currently we are focusing our attentions on assisting areas of literacy that are often overlooked.  While we still have in place many of our usual activities, we are also developing others that will occur through out the year.  As these changes occur they will be reflected on our website.
