Melvys came to the United States from Honduras 13 years ago. She has three children: an 11-year-old and 6-yearold twins.

Narcisa is from Ecuador. She is grateful for her time studying at Caroline House, where she learned English. In addition to learning proper pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and understanding and skills building for living in contemporary U. S. culture, her life has been enriched by friendships formed with other immigrant women from a variety of countries. Now she is better able to help her children with school and her husband with his business.
