CityStream: Learning the Language & Hidden Hunger
CityStream: Learning the Language & Hidden Hunger

Many immigrants arrive here with special skills. Some are professors, architects, and accountants. But many don't speak the language, limiting them to low-paying jobs. Now, Seattle's nationally recognized "Ready to Work" program is providing new opportunities, allowing immigrants to write the next chapter of their lives - in English. Also, it's neighbor helping neighbor in the battle against hidden hunger. Little Free Pantries open new doors to those in need. And for busy students, getting to the dentist can be a challenge.
