They found a second home at the Y

“I was worried about my kids. Now, I’m relieved.”

If you met the four Meflah children, you would find it hard to believe that they couldn’t speak French twelve months ago when they arrived from Algeria. Their parents, Salim and Sinsabel, were worried about the problems the kids were having at school. They couldn’t give them individual help with their schoolwork. So, they signed the kids up to the Y’s homework help program…

What a relief! They made fast progress; they learned French, got better grades, made new friends.

It was more than just homework help. It was a way for their whole family to integrate into their new country.
