Where to Get Help

Are you looking for a program or know someone who needs some help?
Project READ provides free referrals to programs and agencies in our network area, Waterloo and Wellington. Please call or email us to talk about your options. We can help you find the program that is right for you or someone you know.
We also provide Educational and Essential Skills Assessments. An Assessment shows a person’s skill levels (reading, writing, spelling, math, etc.) so they can find the right upgrading and training program. It begins a person’s pathway to success: a better job, higher level training, post-secondary education, high school diploma or GED, and independence.
