Obstacles and struggles are often the stepping stones to success. We see the proof of that in a mom we know named Ivanize.
Ivanize came to Families First in Cabarrus County after hearing from others that “Families First is helping people.” She soon joined our Celebrating Families program and began attending our ESL classes.
With the help of her amazing ESL teachers, Ivanize began to learn English and was determined to eventually take the Citizenship test to become a U.S. citizen. Her daughters were in full support of their mom and would even help her study the questions for the test.
