“I’m very grateful for the support and kindness that I received from Center for New Americans. Moving to another country is a challenge that is even more difficult if you don’t speak the language.

“For me, the teachers and staff of Center for New Americans are like mothers and fathers, guiding their baby’s first steps into a new world and life. We utter our first word in English, just like a babies utter their first words. The process is the same.”

—Maricella Obando-Moya
