Being a stranger in a strange land can be a very disorienting and isolating experience. The Naz family, like many new Americans, arrived in the United States and found themselves without a community to call their own. Thousands of miles from family and friends, the family finally found the Child & Family Network Centers (CFNC) and were able to enroll both of their children in our program. Saima, the mother, immediately enrolled in the CFNC’s Family Support Services. Social Workers helped the parents identify goals and establish functional plans to meet their objectives. Saima also enrolled in CFNC’s ESL classes and joined our Mother’s Group. Through diligent effort and support from CFNC, Saima was able to achieve her goal of becoming a child care worker. Both of her children have since graduated from CFNC’s preschool program and entered Kindergarten on par with their peers!
