Azmera, who also goes by the nickname Azi, first heard about Literacy Source in her native Ethiopia. Her brother, who had immigrated to the U.S. years earlier told her, "When you come to the U.S., you need to go to Literacy Source so you can learn English. That's the first thing you have to do.”
Kevin is a GED student at Literacy Source who started studying here last spring. He was born and raised in Seattle and has settled in Lake City where he also works, running the winter shelter co-hosted by the Mennonite Church, which shares our courtyard.
