Aberg Center

Aberg Center for Literacy

The mission of, Aberg Center for Literacy is building richer lives, stronger families and better communities through programs in English fluency, Spanish and English GED preparation, early childhood education and family literacy.

The Aberg Center, founded at St. Matthew’s Cathedral by Charles Aberg in 2002, is an example of Charles’ life-long determination to make the world a better place for others. An active member of St. Matthews Cathedral, Charles learned that many members of the church’s large Hispanic congregation wanted more than basic English as a second language (ESL) training. They were interested in improving their English and gaining skills that would enable them to lead productive lives in the English-speaking world. Until his life ended in April of 2005, one month shy of his 87th birthday, Charles was untiring in his commitment to ensure that the Aberg Center fulfilled his mission. He accomplished that, and more, with a program that has become a fitting legacy to his commitment to helping others help themselves.
