English at Work was a small organization delivering English classes at workplaces in Austin. In 2013, in an effort to scale its program, English at Work proposed a merger to the Literacy Coalition of Central Texas, a nonprofit that works to improve the quality and increase the availability of literacy services through partnerships with 40 nonprofit agencies in Central Texas. The two organizations officially merged in January of 2014, with English at Work becoming one of the Coalition’s signature programs. A Lodestar Foundation challenge grant funded the one-time integration costs associated with the merger.
