The success of more than 15 years of the Catherine M. Lee Women's & Children's Center programming has exceeded expectations. The program has benefited more than 750 women and their families to date by providing ESL instruction, employability skills, computer literacy, parent education, orientation to American culture, and self-help. Early childhood education for children of the women ages 5 and younger is provided while their mothers attend program activities, further helping the children enter school eager to learn, ready to succeed, and be better prepared to achieve educational parity.
