The CAFE provides affordable English literacy instruction, adult basic education, and GED preparation to Gunnison and Hinsdale County adults and their families who wish to improve their communication and living skills. We help to improve the quality of life for low-literacy community members by expanding their education. We teach our students functional English, focusing on communicating with others in personal and professional settings. We also try to assist our students in becoming more involved with the education of their children. The CAFE promotes children’s literacy activities and develop the academic, emotional, and social skills of children.
