Since I have been attending the program, I have come a long way with my skills and learning to read and write better. I thank the staff of the program for all their hard work and time and especially the volunteers, who are really helpful.
Hopefully I will be able to get a great job and be able to read to my son Cody and help him in different activities. These are my goals and my ambitions and I am sticking to them.
No one should be embarrassed to receive help in learning to read and write. People are there to help because they care!
