I had a couple email exchanges with one of our Reading and Writing community members. In those exchanges, we shared a little information about her interests in participating and a question. Since the community members are so wise and experienced, we are posing the question or request which we hope will generate some helpful guidance as her church community develops an adult literacy program. I've made a couple edits to her message in the interest of space and clarity. Thank you for your guidance and suggestions.

I am an associate minister at a church on Long Island. I am in the process of starting an adult program to help our members some of whom are functionally illiterate, some have reading difficulties, and even the ordained elders of the church do not read well. I thought it would be smart to start a reading program, not a GED program, that would be the next installment. Does anyone have any ideas about resources to start?
