Talking Love (Testimonials)

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with immigrant communities since 1997. I’ve been fortunate in working with many wonderful volunteers that have donated their time and expertise to make English a reality for our newcomers. Never have I been more floored by the professionalism and the compassion of the teachers from People Places Things. At this point they have considerably helped upwards of a thousand people with their very comprehensive program. I wholeheartedly applaud their continued efforts make the lives of so many that much more rich.”
