"All success comes with great effort and dedication. Moving to a new country, adjusting to a new culture, new people, new rules, was a huge shock for my family and me when we arrived in the United States in March 2014.
The first years were tough, but we were fortunate to have the Chicano Federation on our side. Not only did they have great management and dedicated, caring site managers, they were able to provide us with a wonderful large apartment in City Heights at a very affordable rent – close to my work at the Alliance for African Assistance and to other refugees living in the area.
My family and I are deeply grateful to the Chicano Federation for making the transition to our new homeland so much easier. You have made a difference for us and so many others!"
