|Bonnie Entler, Executive Director of Seeds of Literacy|
Our Ward 14 office has been working closely with Seeds of Literacy over the last few years in providing them with funding and helping them to leverage their resources to strengthen their programming and services.
Last year, working collaboratively with other City Council members and Mayor Jackson's Administration, Seeds of Literacy obtain additional funds that assisted in the expansion of operations to an east side location at 13815 Kinsman Road - they serve as a city-wide adult literacy program. Their west side offices are located on the 3rd floor of the US Bank Building at 3104 W. 25th Street (at Clark Avenue).
