“It’s a life saver. Let’s say you have a really hard day, when you join, it changes it into a good day. Awesome experience -- makes your life ten times better. I learned friendship; I didn’t have many friends before Hillside, but now I do — and I feel cared for.”

since 1st Grade
“I enjoy Hillside so much because it means I found in America some good relationships for me and my children. In this center I improved so much in my English speaking, writing, and preparing for my job. I learned a lot of true things from them. The people at Hillside share so much with me every week and in this pandemic time, Jim and Carin gave us mental and other support. I found so much good for my life.”

“When I first came, I thought I would just learn schoolwork, but I learned values and how to be a kind person too. They help you, and they never get angry. I learned it’s ok to take a moment to think; that’s something I don’t think I would have learned somewhere else.”
