How the Literacy Center Got Started
In 1988, the Junior Woman's Club of Milford provided the financial support to establish
the Milford satellite office of the Literacy Volunteers of New Haven. This was done by a committee of women that eventually
turned the task over to Frances O'Neill as the first Director. She coordinated the program out of her home until 1992
when the city of Milford provided office space at the Margaret Egan Center. In 1994, they broke away from the Literacy
Volunteers of America and became their own non-profit, community based, literacy agency, known as the Literacy Center of Milford
which serves the greater Milford, Connecticut area. In 1995, they relocated
to a larger space at the Fannie Beach Center. Tami Jackson is currently the director of the Literacy Center of Milford.
