SCNs Use Funding from Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Violence to Serve Immigrants
Last April, Agnes Ellen Rose, SCN wrote a letter of thanks to the Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Violence Committee. She thanked the committee for funding which provided transportation to Tufts Medical Center in South Boston for Chinese and other immigrants.
The funding also allowed for the purchase of workbooks, magazines, dictionaries, and other educational tools for the adults and children.
“We cannot thank you enough for considering us,” Sister Agnes Ellen wrote.
Martha Walsh, SCN writes, “As I minister to Asian immigrants, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to embrace multiculturalism by teaching ESOL.” Sister Martha serves immigrants in Quincy, Massachusetts.
Anne Rita Mauck, SCN used assistance from Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Violence to purchase ESL materials for the immigrant women she serves at St. Rita Parish in Louisville, Kentucky.
