by Paula Y. from Seattle, WA
Helping Link is a one-of-a-kind agency that has reached out to Vietnamese immigrants and refugees in greater Seattle for 17 years. Children and adults learn how to succeed in the US, their new home, in essential and satisfying ways--language and computer skills; after school programs for school basics and art; field trips for all ages; simultaneously honoring Vietnamese culture and learning American cultures. Completely volunteer run except for the Exec. Dir--hardest working, most committed, miracle-worker on-budget leader/ founder imaginable. Located in "Little Saigon" in Seattle's International District. As a volunteer, I always feel valued and trusted to do real work that engages my experience/creativity. I see the difference HL makes in so many real-life, ways that go beyond surviving to thriving. Check it out.
