Since 1920, Friendly House has offered classes in English literacy to serve foreign-born members of the community from all race and ethnic backgrounds. These services continue today under the Adult Education Program which has expanded and evolved into one of Arizona's most successful programs.
The Adult Education Program gives access to quality educational opportunities to support employment, job training and higher education aspirations. By assisting adult learners to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for effective participation in society, Friendly House creates an exceptional future for Arizona, where citizens transform their lives and realize their full potential.
