Student and Volunteer Success Stories

The English class at Arbor has been a life saver for me. Coming from China with no family here and very few Chinese in this area, I was very lonely and finding it difficult to adjust to life in America. The teachers at Arbor are very kind and really want to help you in many ways not just to learn English. I thank them for helping me.
