Review for The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford (MCIF) Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After my sister, Sr. Maura Clarke, was killed in El Salvador in 1980, I wondered how to keep her memory, and her good work alive. The two sisters who began this Center in Bushwick, Brooklyn, have done so. Maura (and her friend) Ita Ford were committed to impoving living conditions and educational opportunities for women, their children, and their families. In Brooklyn, MCIF conducts English as a second language classes, assists people to get their GED, and also broadens their employment opportunities. MCIF helps new immigrants make the challenging transitision from their home countries to become contributing American citizens. MCIF is a friendly, welcoming place where both men and women can come to help them find their place in this country. I am honored to be part of this grass roots organization.
