Literacy Program

CHI holds a regular weekly literacy program that matches volunteer tutors to individuals that need assistance.

Our volunteers complete a one-day training workshop and then, with their student, create a plan of action that addresses the student’s specific literacy needs.

Individuals interested in volunteering with CHI as a tutor should please contact us.

Library

In 2012, we began collecting reading materials for our guests’ enlightenment and entertainment reading pleasure. At regular intervals we offer them a convenient source for books, magazines and newspapers.
