Holy Cross Family Learning Center (HCFLC) was founded in 2010 in a small corner of Manchester’s city library. Nine years later, the center educates nearly 150 immigrants and refugee adult students a year using an integrated English literacy and civics education approach. Classes are offered both in the mornings and in the evenings to accommodate student schedules. The Center also hosts a workforce development program by offering computer classes. Citizenship classes are offered for those students preparing to take their naturalization test. A BCAF grant of $4,000 was provided to support two staff positions: a Nepali translator and a technology teacher.
