CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations are in order for our recent client, PL, who came to our attention just a little over a year ago.  His story at that time appears on this website under Asylee Stories.  A volunteer host helped by housing him, and we provided small amounts of cash for personal expenses.  PL quickly found volunteer and then paid jobs teaching several courses in mathematics at both Seton Hall U. and at Guttman Community College, a branch of CUNY, in Manhattan.  He recently found housing on his own, so even though he is still awaiting his asylum hearings, he is completely independent of our aid and is a productive worker  and wonderful addition to our society after an amazingly short period of time.

Elizabeth D. Ames, M.D.
