Young Children on a Path to Success

When Allegra came to NAZ, she knew that she wanted a better life for her family. Thanks to scholarships secured through NAZ, she was able to enroll her three youngest children in La Crèche, a four-star-rated early learning center. Allegra also learned skills to support early learning for all her kids, including six-year-old Richard. Richard’s scores on the Beginning Kindergarten Assessment showed that he arrived at kindergarten ready to learn, and he is now on the A honor roll at Harvest Prep’s Mastery School.

Allegra is now focusing on her own education and pursuing her long-held dream of working in health care. Allegra was matched with a job counselor at EMERGE, completed Certified Nursing Assistant coursework, earned her license, and is in the process of searching for a job.
