Support DePorres Place
Strengthening communities with literacy programs that teach, connect, and encourage. But we can’t do it alone!
DePorres Place is a highly regarded adult literacy program in Palm Beach County and was honored with the 2009 “Excellence in Education” Award by the Florida Literacy Coalition as “an organization demonstrating achievement, innovation, leadership and organizational excellence”. As the population of Palm Beach County became more diverse, DePorres Place developed an effective conversational English program — ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) — for adult immigrants who wanted to learn to speak English. At the beginning of the school year in 2002, DePorres P.L.A.C.E. added this ESOL program.
