This program is designed for adults in a small class setting learning basic speaking, listening, reading and writing English, as well as individual instruction and tutoring for beginning readers and writers of Creole and English.
We serve low-income adult immigrants and families in the Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan areas. Our clients range in age from 18 to 72, men and women, from places including Haiti, Dominican Republic, Guinea, the People's Republic of Congo, Guatemala, Somalia, and more.
The people we serve face poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, lack of proper health care and nutrition, homelessness, and countless other hurdles in their attempts to become self-sufficient members of American society. The communities in which they live often lack such basic amenities as access to healthy food and public transportation. Despite these challenges, our clients continue to come to class and work to make a better life for themselves and their families.
