Review for Literacy Source - A Community Learning Center, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Meeting the people that have been helped by the organization is very impressive. Whether they are ESL students or non-high school graduates the stories of progress in self esteem and opportunity for work is uplifting. It is especially heartwarming to meet families of those that have worked to earn a certification/degree or become a citizen. The education of a person impacts and nourishes so many more around them than just themselves.
