Lend Your Support
Vita continues to provide quality programs to the residents of Bucks County despite the fact that our resources have been severely curtailed by the current economic situation. This occurs at the very time that individuals are calling in increasing numbers for the services we provide. This makes our community fundraising efforts this year especially important. We invite you to partner with Vita by lending your support to our important mission.
Vita partners with school districts, social service agencies, family centers, libraries, churches and the Bucks County Correctional Facility to provide free educational services in basic literacy, GED preparation, English as a Second Language, family literacy and decision-making.

Be Part of our Students’ Success
By lending your support to Vita as a donor, volunteer or collaborator, you can help make stories like these come true.
Patricia, a Family Literacy student, shared her experience going to a meeting for parents of future kindergarteners hosted by Bensalem School District. She was able to attend an IEP meeting and communicate with the teachers without a translator. She said she understood most of the conversation and was able to ask clarifying questions about anything she did not understand. Her husband and relatives were surprised because she went alone to these meetings, without being accompanied by a higher-level English speaker.
Barbara was laid off from her job as a secretary and came to the CareerLink for help finding employment. Instead she was recommended to Vita’s GED class to provide a better opportunity for the future. As Barbara progressed through the class, she took each section of the five-part GED test individually. She was thrilled to find that, after taking the math portion for the second time this October, she had passed and received her GED! She continued to take our Reading and Writing for the GED & Beyond class to brush up on her skills as she prepared to head to Bucks County Community College this spring. She is considering a career as a bookkeeper or medical assistant.
